Approved building Miranda reactor and some other parts of the Elena reactor.
It was introduced a new magnetic field function in the magnetic simulator in order to use elliptics integrals to obtain exact values. With the new function the new magnetic simulator version number 38 shows troubles in the interface between the plasma and the confinement walls, so the design must be changed
Design of neural network based software to support the magnetic and electrostatic simulators
Troubles found in the Elena compression chamber so it will be refurbished. At least 3 new chambers will be designed using 3 different approach to increase the plasma density.
It will be obtained an hydrogen supply to power the reactors. It must be designed all the pneumatics. New coils are on the design board that must have cooling vacuum compatible to allow pass up to a hundred kiloamps.
A new tracer simulator should be used to adjust magnetic lens in junction with tha AI algorithms.
Another simulator must be done to allow better compression shape. It will be connected also with a neural network algoritm.
September 2018. Increase fundings 17x
Electrostatic simulator version 8 released, where it is added multithreads to make it run 7 times faster
Three designs for the Elena electrostatic reactor reached the 80% efficiency level in the simulations. In the new magnetic simulator 34 it is added new coils to the magnetic reactors that not only allows accelerate plasma but also the confinement and reduce losses. Some of the problems detected in the previous versions where solved. Now the simulator calculates the reactor temperature at full throtle to help in the thermal management design
Electrostatic simulator version 6 released
Started the design of new reactors based on Magnetic design. Dozens simulations are thrown that results in the new Miranda reactor design but only two reached 20% efficiency.
it is created a new magnet simulator that generates in 2 dimensions the magnetic field due rare earth magnets to be used in different parts of the Liner and Magnetic reactors.
It is detected a lot of lacks in the magnetic simulation: it must be rectified the coil resistance calculus tobe used to have an accurate loses calculus. Losses must be reduced in order to reduce also the cooling requirements
It is modified the power board design to use 30 kiloamps devices instead of 11 kiloamps per device.
July 2018 Magnetic simulator boost
A new version 4 of the electrostatic simulator is released, now it goes faster using a 2-D approach in order to reduce simulation points.
Started the design of the Elena reactor of the Liner class.
Magnetic simulator new versions 14 to 32 with dozens improvements are released. It is included also elliptic shape and squared shaope reactors . The reactor design changed radically to ioncrease the efficiency from 40% towards 80% and include new confination coils and a new design more easy to build and test
On design new power electronics board
Released Magnetic simulator version 13, it includes the AGM method to calculate inductance.
Now it calculates field outside coils. Also it is made a changing segment length in the magnetic simulator to make a better result close to coils
The new capacitors are received to be mounted at transmission power line
Reactor design modified to increase plasma density to allow less vacuum and to increase the plasma density in the combustion chamber
A new and powerful electrostatic simulator is released to boost Liner reactor design.
It is designed a new power stage and a new capacitor bank.
It was mounted two new versions of the magnetic reactors, but it was found lot of troubles: the plasma ionization outside the reactor, losses more than 40%, they are very difficult to build and the vacuum chamber must be very big to cover the reactor. Also there are a lot of dissipation problems that provokes using very difficult mixxed design of low fusion temperature ceramics with high thermal coefficients. Another troubles of the designs is that is very difficult to make modifications in the design after building.
