One-dimensional particle and energy balance equations are solved for a 50-50 D-T burning Tokasnak operating in the reactor regime. Steady-state solutions which satisfy MHD equilibrium and stability criteria are obtained for banana, plateau, and classical transport coefficients by suitable enhancement of the coefficients. The effects of trapped particle instabilities and impurities are investigated. Unresolved questions about the physical phenomena *which will determine particle and energy

The purpose of this paper is to examine the effect of various assumptions about the particle and energy transport mechanisms upon the predicted performance of hypothetical Tokamak power reactors with a 50-50 D-T mixture.
