A Fusion Plant is a facility where power is generated using a nuclear fusion process.

  • At higher technology levels, fusion power plants become portable. The Fusion+ power plant is one such development.

Description / Specifications[edit]

To reduce the reactor pressures and energies at lower tech levels a proton-proton reaction is used, while at higher technology levels the CNO reaction chain provides more power, but requires a higher confinement temperature.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

At lower technology levels the power levels available are limited by the confinement chamber and electromagnetic field forces, which as the technology advances are able to increase the power output for a certain volume, and reduce the minimum size of the reaction confinement chamber.
