Nuclear Fusion may not be confused with nuclear fission, the principle of the nuclear power plants, where uranium is used.

The topic Nuclear Fusion Systems is critically considered by many engineers. But we might be always open minded. The hot fusion (also the Lockheed system, see below) might need some more 10 years or even more. There are less engineers open minded for the system of the cold fusion – but NASA, MIT and CERN already have granted the option. Currently the feasibility is still very unclear, but we must not forget nuclear fusion on the list of potential major milestones. Even in my region, someone was said to develop a system. Until now, it is discussed, if it physically works. In case the cold fusion works, the system probably may sweep away other systems from the markets. Small energy plants then can be installed for decentralized energy supply in the cellar and older big plants powered by gas / coal / oil might as well be converted to the new system of cold fusion. Besides useful purposes in medicine and chemical production only cars are said to need further oil since cars are expected to need more 5-10 years to drive with stability when powered by other sources: Cars are exposed to enormous loads as outside temperatures, vibrations, user profiles etc.

Cold Fusion

A technology from the last century might enable small power plants to produce heat as well as electricity for a small part of today’s price. These small power plants might be installed in the cellar. Due to an information, we in Royal Network received, there would be no nuclear waste and during operation no radiation. Operation does not require toxic or radiant materials, it is based on materials as Nickel or Palladium. Reliable results of the research are based on nickel. The system currently is in development. But it might be of enormous positive effect for the energy supply in the next 5-10 years.

Hot Fusion

With a fusion reactor which might be transported on a normal truck with the efficiency of 100 Megawatt American scientists from Lockheed Martin want to expand into the energy world. The fusion is based on hydrogen isotops. Fusion takes place between Deuterium and Triton, both are variants i.e. isotopes of hydrogen. They merge into Helium at temperatures of at least 100 Grad Celsius, which no material can withstand. Thus new systems are a need to keep the hot plasma, a mixture of positive and negative particles, contact less to each other inside the reactor as in a cage. For building that cage powerful superconducting coils are required, for the flow of huge electric currents. As it “normally” happens in the large scale fusion experiments everywhere in the world as in the reactor Wendelstein 7-X, which currently goes in Greifswald into operation and Iter, the world’s larges rector, which is currently under construction in France in Cadarache. Die Lockheed scientists now want to find industrialists to invest: With the huge echo on media reports, the latter now at least are informed. In the next years already, there might be tests, in 5 years there might be a prototype. The comment - not only from Royal Network, but from several scientists: Just everything is so expensive, that perhaps never a reliable energy supply can be achieved.
