Of all the current nuclear fusion reactor experiments JET and ITER http://site-2207487-336-7366.mystrikingly.com are the largest. JET, Joint European Torus, based in Culham Science Centre in the UK, is the centre of Europeâ€™s fusion research. JET is currently the worldâ€™s largest tokomak capable of delivering up to 30 MW of power, it is used by more than 20 European Countries and also used by international scientists. It is used to test the conditions that will be in use by commercial fusion power plants. JET began in 1978, in operation since 1983 and in November of 1991 became the first experiment to produce controlled nuclear fusion power.It has been a stepping stone for ITER, producing parameters that have been vital in its production. In 1997 a record of 16 MW of energy were produced by JET using the mixed deuterium-tritium fuel with an input of 24 MW; a 65% ratio. ITER, originally standing for International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor but dropped due to negative connotations of thermonuclear especially combined with the word experimental.
