A main goal of fusion research is to demonstrate the viability of the generation of long-term, safe, and environmentally benign energy through nuclear fusion. A single fusion power station will be able to generate electricity for two million households, and is a fascinating alternative for the large-scale electricity production required to meet the needs of large cities and a growing and developing world population.
Fusion is a particularly attractive energy solution as it uses fuels that are abundant and available around the globe. The primary fuel for fusion is an ionized, low-density gas, a plasma, composed of deuterium and tritium.
Ampegon designs and delivers sophisticated high voltage power supplies or amplifiers for the three major plasma heating facilities: Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating (ECRH), Ion Cyclotron Resonance Heating (ICRH) and Neutral Beam Injection (NBI).
