dc.description.abstractA point kinetics model of particle densities and temperatures within a CTR was formulated with certain assumptions. Common temperatures were assumed for ions and electrons. The number densities of each ionic species (deuterium and tritium) were equal. A divertor was employed in the reactor to remove ions, alpha particles, and impurities. Equilibrium point solutions and fractional burn-ups were obtained after simulating different operating regimes of a D-T fueled fusion reactor. This was done essentially by varying a temperature dependent confinement time. The source density remained constant throughout all calculations. The stability of some equilibrium points against perturbations in particle densities and temperatures was investigated by dynamic simulation. Some regimes were found to be unstable and others were found to be Lagrange stable.en
