I agree that for conventional equipment 110 m is not that large. But controlling a plasma is a rather different thing. The length of the FRC will be significantly scaled up in the planned machines. Naively one could think that there could be additional complications in controlling a very long FRC, b...
Also interesting that their target for initial plants is mega cities in developing countries as it seems they think it won’t be as cost competitive with other alternatives in the developed world. Also fission is being considered as an option in African and other countries. http://www.world-nuclear-...
A modern coal fired plant has pulverizers, primary air fans, forced and induced draft fans, SCR's, SO2 scrubbers with limestone pulverizers pumps etc., precipitators, a coal field, stacker/ reclaimer coal handling systems, boiler which can be 200 ft tall, not to mention the 500 foot tall stacks to ...
It could also be that they are cautious by targeting a goal that they confidently can meet. If everything works out fine, then it might be possible to push the limit towards higher values of the triple product.
The scale of the TAE Technologies devices is becoming impressive. Norman is about 30 m long, Copernicus is planned to be more than 45 m long and the power plant plan is for a device almost 110 m long. These are linear devices and that gives of course a lot ot benefits, but they will still be rather ...
I thought it was interesting that they have a panel of experts that come in and do peer review every 6 months and report the results to the board. I wonder if the other fusion projects do a similar thing. When EMC2 was funded by the Navy then they had regular reviews by an external panel. Two of th...

Total funds raised for fusion venture Tokamak Energy exceeds £50M
The GF concept is quite nice in that they are already considering a full power plant configuration, while most of the others are mainly focusing on the fusion core. It will be interesting to follow how their fund raising goes. They need a lot of money, but they show steady nice progress, so I guess ...
