You can find plenty of descriptions of heat pumps on air-conditioning ‘net sites, so I’m not going to describe the physics behind different types of pumps. A multitude of different heat pumps are used today, based on the manufacturers—including vapor-compression systems like your home refrigerator, sonic cooling systems, magneto-caloric systems and others. Alternate Materials Standard heat sink radiators have been using graphite tubing and fins since the dawn of the BattleMech. The graphite’s structure is carefully arranged for best heat flow, and oriented graphite can have a thermal conductivity about five times that of the reigning metallic champions, silver and copper.

Like fighter engines, an electron beam, an electrical arc, is used to superheat the reaction mass. However, jump jets do not add plasma vented from the fusion engine, unlike fighters. Aerospace fighters are interested in maximizing their engine efficiency because they have to carry all their reaction mass onboard, and thus want the exhaust as hot as possible. On the other hand, jump jets usually have an endless supply of reaction mass and don’t need all the complexity of venting their fusion engine’s plasma.

More fusion reactions mean more heat means hotter plasma. But the magnetic confinement fields are not rigid. ” When the plasma gets hotter, it pushes against the magnetic fields because its pressure is rising, and the magnetic fields give a bit. The expansion cools the plasma, and the reactions drop. There’s some elbow room in the reactor chamber for just this purpose. Now, I said the fusion reactions drop when they get cooler. There are ways for the plasma to cool other than expansion. One way is when the plasma touches the relatively frigid walls of the reaction chamber.
