Continuous Electrode IECF // NextBigFuture

Post by zbarlici »

Pretty sure you've all seen this, i just found it while browsing r/polywell(news pretty stale there also).

https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2017/09/c ... ion-2.html

How would direct energy conversion reduce cooling needs?

Has the design actually morphed to have the permanent magnet as a continuous electrode? Has this actually been tested? Is the permanent magnet idea imported from another fusor idea that some other team was working with?

....here's hoping that there's a lot more to Trump's 'space force' than he lets on!

This isn't a very high volume site to start with, but some of the foremost posters seemed to have left last year, and then the downtime from January to May put a further damper on participation (i.e. some people stopped checking in).

Whenever you convert something into something else you will face efficiency losses (generally waste heat), hence reducing the steps to the conversion process will improve the general efficiency, reduce the waste heat and hence the cooling requirements.

For what I know all this is still just a "theoretical" work.
