It is time to talk about “Capacity Factors”​

by Dr Lars Schernikau   In electricity generation, capacity factor, utilization, and load factor are not the same. A lot of confusion exists in the press and certainly in politics, and even amongst “energy experts”, about using the term “capacity factor”. It may be excused, since the distinction made in this article became only relevant…

Fusion Breeding and Pure Fusion Development – Perceptions and Misperceptions

By Wallace Manheimer Abstract: This paper examines fusion breeding, namely the use of 14 MeV fusion neutrons to breed 233U fuel for thermal nuclear reactors. This can be accomplished much more quickly than pure fusion. It can become main component of a power architecture that is economical, environmentally sound and has little if any proliferation…

Van Wijngaarden and Happer: 2n-Stream Radiative Transfer

The understanding of Earth’s climate depends to a large extent on our knowledge of radiative transfer processes in the atmosphere. Short wavelength radiation in the visible range from the sun enters the atmosphere and finds its way to the surface to warm it. Long wavelength radiation in the infrared range is emitted from the surface…
