VBM Fusion Reactor D-D Cycle
Abstract: With the help of particle accelerator, we inject the bunches of deuterons following one by one at a point F (named as center of fusion) located in the tokamak within into which the two magnetic fields (perpendicular to each other) are applied. The deuteron of first injected bunch, due to magnetic fields, undergo to a circular motion and after completing the circle, it again reaches at the same point F (where it was injected) where it fuses with the deuteron of the later injected bunch (reaching at point F). The two deuterons fuse at point F and produce helium -3 and neutron. The produced charged helium -3 nucleus, under the influence of magnetic fields, undergo to a circular motion, but in trying to complete the circle, due to lack of space in the tokamak, helium -3 strike to the wall of the tokamak. The produced uncharged nucleus - the neutron is not influenced by the magnetic fields and strike to the wall of the tokamak where it is absorbed by the inner liner ( graphite) of the tokamak. Similarly, the two deuterons fuse at point F and produce triton and proton. Both the produced charged nuclei, due to magnetic fields, undergo to circular motion but in trying to complete their circles, due to lack of space in the tokamak, they strike to the wall of the tokamak. The produced charged nuclei - helium -3, triton and proton strike to the wall of the tokamak and by transferring their energy to the tokamak, they attain gaseous state and thus are extracted by the vacuum pumps attached to the tokamak. The heat energy from the tokamak is transferred to heat exchanger where it is used to make water vapour to run the turbine to produce electricity.
