Introduction. Power balance considerations have shown that a magnetic fusion reactor should operate at a temperature of about 15 keV and be designed to achieve a value of p τ E > atm s.

Even so, these considerations do not shed any light on the optimum tradeoff between p and τ do they provide any insight into the geometric scale and magnetic field of a fusion reactor.
