- In this paper a set of parameters for a Tormac reactor is developed. The scaling indicates that a Tormac reactor could be constructed with a modest energy output of about 500 megawatts with magnetic fields averaging 20 kG, peak fields of 40 kG, and a plasma radius of about two meters. Wall loading under these conditions can be kept modest. It is further noted that Tormac can be run in a steady state mode. Thus, Tormac makes an economically attractive alternative to tokamak.
