Tokamaks are fusion machines that are under development to produce baseload power. Baseload power is the power that is produced 24/7 and provides the base for powering the electric grid. The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) is an international project that will produce net power from a Tokamak. Net power means the Tokamak produces more energy than it consumes. Consumption includes heating the ...
