A review of the physical fundamentals and approximate parameters for controlled energy release by thermnonuclear fusion is presented. Assuming present research will successfully develop a fusion reactor, a comparison is made between different possible fusion power cycles. An approximate electrical power cost breakdown from the D-T and He3-D systems (including the needed fuel breeding cycles) is calculated.
