  26. CONCLUSIONS ● Huge reconnection heating for fusion plasma startup. ●Large increase in CS resistivity when CS () < i. ●Quasi-steady rec. was transformed to impulsive rec. with comp. force (inflow) in Push Merging exp. • Pileup of density and flux / their ejection. • Pileups of mass increase the rec. speed. 3) The current sheet ejection also causes the high rec. speed due to large mass ejections from X-point region. ●Similar impulsive reconnection in high inflow Pull Merging exp. • Pileup of density &plasmoid ejection cause impulsive rec. in high inflow case. ●Extension of rec. heating to the new UTST exp.
