Abstract

The influence of the Nuclear Elastic Scattering (NES) on required plasma β-value to realize the self-sustaining D3He burning was examined by solving the Boltzmann-Fokker-Planck (BFP) equation for proton, plasma power-balance and particle-conservation equations. It is shown that the NES enhance the fractional power deposition of fusion-produced proton to ions by about 3 times, and noticeably reduce the required plasma β-value limit.
