Question about ITER

  1. Nov 25, 2003 #1
    Was just reading through some articles on the ITER site, very interesting. There's a bit too many for me to sift through here at work but was wondering if someone might have an answer to my question. How is energy extracted from the Tokamak and how will it produce electricity? Will energy released from the reaction be used to drive steam turbines? I can't imagine how to tap into the energy of a toroid of burning plasma.

    I don't even know how this done is current fission reactors. Any enlightenment would be appreciated.
