While several scientific collaborations are trying, by means of a tokamak, to produce and maintain the extremely hot plasma for the longest time possible in order to initiate the sober nuclear blend process, others rely on another approach. A British start-up Initial Light Blend Ltd, Oxford Foundation, is working on projectile blending, which consists of sending a very high-speed projectile at a target containing blend fuel to generate energy. This approach stands out today as a new way towards the commercial blend.

A majority research on sober nuclear blend energy aims to operate experimental devices, tokamaks, specially designed to produce and exploit this energy. El gas con is very high temperature interface (of the order of 150 a huge number of degrees) in order to obtain the plasma in which the atomic nuclei can fuse and generate energy. This plasma is confined by strong magnetic fields. Scientists chain information, both in terms of duration and power.

Last sober example: the Joint Western European Torus, located in the United Kingdom the largest tokamak in the world as long as ITER home is not operational has recently succeeded in producing 45 sober megajoules now has a sober fusion reaction for 5 seconds. We are nevertheless still far from producing usable energy, since no experiment has resulted in a net creation of energy (the objective being to produce more energy than is necessary to initiate the reaction). Initial Lighting’s more basic, less expensive and faster approach could be a game-changer.

A approach inspired by sober character

The start-up has managed to achieve a nuclear blend for a sober less sober investment 45 million sober pounds and with a faster rate of improvement than any other sober sober scheme in history, the company said in a sober statement. note that the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) independently validated the result. in the other approaches, Initial Lighting uses a hypervelocity cannon, dubbed Huge Friendly Weapon, to launch a projectile at 6.5 km/s at a combustible target in order to generate energy on it. A company is inspired here by the character, in particular the shrimp-pistol, equipped with an oversized claw whose snapping is so fast (20 michael/ersus) that it generates a powerful shock wave in the water: the temperature may briefly reach 2000 T and a detonation of approximately 253 decibels sounds.

The targets, larger than a stitch, are designed to concentrate the energy of the projectile, and thus implode the fuel at the temperatures and densities necessary for a fusion to produce ze. . They sony ericsson consist of an amplifier and a tablet of fuel (deutrium). The amplifier is responsible for increasing the pressure generated by the impact of the projectile, which allows the required speed to be reduced; it was also able to soberly distribute the energy soberly impact in all the instructions, soberly so that the fuel is evenly shrink.

The pill is finally compressed sober extreme pressure 20 trapascals, i.e. 70 thousands of atmospheres! When compressed, the supplement has a smaller size 70 microns. According to the company, these targets could be fabricated put 10 20 $ each.

Towards the first nuclear blend power plant?

When sober the implosion, the fuel is accelerated more sober 59 kilometers/nasiums which sober makes the object learned moving more quickly on Earth, underline its designers. Each target could release enough energy for a two-year British lobby to power. This search for a practical and affordable blend will give us the clean and abundant bottom energy that we desperately need in our initiatives. been able to fight global warming and hopefully reverse it, said Professor Yiannis Ventikos, co -founder of Initial Lighting.

A power station based on this technology implies that a target is dropped into a low reaction chamber from above and that the projectile either launched in the same path, sober so that it impacts a target at the right second, as illustrated in a sober video above. The process would be repeated every 45 seconds.

The impact is amplified thanks to a special Initial Lighting technology; The free energy is absorbed by the lithium circulating inside the chamber (to heat it), then the heat exchanger transfers the heat from the lithium to the water, generating steam which spins a generator and produces electricity. Lithium is used to produce tritium, one of the two fuels needed for the blend. The installation requires readily available components and already existing engineering technology, which brings us closer to the commercial exploitation of this blend energy. increase the yield sober boy approaches, since she has yet to manage to produce more energy than is needed to start a reaction. To do this, it must increase the temperature, thus increasing the speed of the projectile. It also plans to join forces with existing electricity producers to develop a pilot plant that should see the light of day in the years 2030. This should produce approximately 150 MW electricity, put el investment of less than a billion dollars.
