Fusion Energy Toolbox

Our Fusion Energy Toolbox provides functions for analyzing fusion reactor designs. Compute key plasma physics, collision and confinement times, fusion and loss powers. Analyze the levelized cost of electricity for a projected reactor.

Fusion Reaction Cross-Sections

Analyze magnet systems including mutual inductance of arrays of magnets; size LTS or HTS magnets to meet field or current needs.

With our Fusion Propulsion Add-On module, study straight-line trajectories to deep space destinations, or study planetary departure and insertion for high-Isp systems. Example missions for Mars, Pluto, the solar gravitational lens (>600 AU), and Alpha Centauri.
