The principal heating system for the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor (TFTR) consists of four beamlines to inject beams of neutral deuterium into the tokamak plasma. We have recently injected beams at total powers up to about 30 MW, and we have achieved ion temperatures in the plasma core of 30 keV and more.
