Recovered 88.13% of the injected energy in Pulsotron-3

At test S3070 we used the ERC-08 Electric Recovery Coils and 88.13% of the net energy injected in the target was recovered. But the main scientist suffered an electric shock from the recovery capacitors,  then to increase the energy recovered, new security systems must be installed.

Test S3070 beating energy recovering record

At the test S3071 the coils were separated from target to reduce damage from reaction but the energy recovered decreased to half, that is still much higher than the last test campaign

We are happy because recovery 200% allows us to begin to sell commercial reactors.

In next tests, the recovered energy was 26.89% (test S3072), 22.5% (T3073) and 17.74% (T3074), but in last two tests the magnetic field was maintained during a long time at 7.36 and 4.91 Megateslas. It is due to fusion reactions generates an intense magnetic field. It is clear that the magnetic field is an important parameter not only before but also during and after fusion is performed.

In the last test the generated energy and magnetic field could go down due the ERC structure was blown away, so it will be difficult to repeat tests, especially the setup of the S3070 in the Pulsotron-3 reactor.

As can be seen in the graph below the electric generation sufered a step increase from <5% to over 20% after the introduction of the new ERCs that will be used in the next Fusion Reactor

Recovered energy in Pulsotron-3


Less energy recovered with new setup

In test 3068 we improved the connections between the capacitors to reduce its inductance, but as result the energy recovered falls to 14.29% and the magnetic field was 190 kiloteslas

Test S3071

Then we increased the capacitor bank a 50% to increase the energy recovered and as result in the test S3069 it was recovered 16.7% that is better but far from our record value 22.6%

Test S3069

New energy recovery record up to 22.6%

A new world record in energy recovery from a Fusion reactor at test S3068, was established in 22.6% without nuclear fuel, and it is expected to recover 10.6 times more loading targets with thermonuclear fuel, and there are still several technologies to improve that numbers, so there is a lot of room to obtain more energy recovery than injected. This is a good notice for a damaged Pulsotron-3 that works at 88.9% of nominal voltage.

Fortunately there are good news because we are waiting parts of the new Pulsotron-4 that is 6 times more powerful and have another improvements over Pulsotron-3. It is estimated that the Pulsotron-4 new fusion machine must enter in operation before 10th September
