Abstract [en]

In this work techniques for heating the fusion reactor ITER to thermonuclear temperatures, over 100 million kelvin, is investigated. The temperature is numerically computed for different heating configurations. The heat leakage is modeled to occur only via diffusion. The diffusion is assumed to be a combination of Bohm and gyro-Bohm diffusion. Basic conditions for a fusion reactor has been studied. The power needed for the different heat sources for the plasma to ignite is computed. Plots of the temperature profiles are included in the results together with plots showing the Q-value dependency on the power and the major radius.
