- The application of very high temperature blankets to improved efficiency of electric power generation and production of H/sub 2/ and H/sub 2/ based synthetic fuels is described. The blanket modules have a low temperature (300 to 400/sup 0/C) structure (SS, V, Al, etc.) which serves as the vacuum/coolant pressure boundary, and a hot (>1000/sup 0/C) thermally insulated interior. Approximately 50 to 70% of the fusion energy is deposited in the hot interior because of deep penetration by high energy neutrons. Separate coolant circuits are used for the two temperature zones: water for the low temperature structure, and steam or He for the hot interior. Electric generation efficiencies of approximately 60% and H/sub 2/ production efficiencies of approximately 50 to 70%, depending on design, are projected for fusion reactors using these high temperature blankets.
