Simulations of parameters of the mirror trap-based neutron source limited by the development of DCLC instability

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

The axially symmetric mirror trap with deuterium-Tritium plasma is considered as a neutron source for the hybrid reactor. The goal of this study is to select the facility parameters, providing the maximum neutron yield at a fixed input power. The procedure is proposed for verifying the sufficient criterion for stability of the drift-cone ion-cyclotron mode. Within a limited set of configurations under consideration, the maximum fusion reaction power of 5.8 MW is achieved at an input power of 100 MW.
