If we replace 9 rows of oil or gas burners, with 50x1cm steam plasma burners, we can run a present Fossil Fuels burning plant as a nuclear fusion plant.
We throw most of the ehat away, so we will use 2cc or regular water per plasma tube per year – so really wasteful.
We can take water from the steam we condense in the steam cycle – it is desalinated water. We already top up the steam cycle with distilled water anyway.
So no oil or gas burn. Each plasma tube produces 1200 kW of heat – a gas or or burner produces 45 kW/m.
And the water is virtually free. Fossil Fuels are not. And no CO2, and no solid radioactive waste. We do Molecular Nuclear Fusion
1 H2O+TU ->E3+L+X-ray
So OK, we produce X-rays and light – btu so does the burning of Fossil Fuels – btu far less heat.
2 Cm(H2O)n+TU ->(mCO2-E)+(n-r)H2O+r(He+O+Er3)
So Fossil Fuels burning today does nuclear fusion.
