The importance of developing new technologies to obtain energy by means of nuclear fusion procedures is beyond question. There are several different and technically possible models for doing this, though to date none of these has been able to attain an industrial reactor with an end performance greater than unity. We still find ourselves at the initial phase, after many years, as a result of having failed as yet to come up with a commercially productive machine. Nuclear fusion research has defined a prototype reactor based on a fluid conductor, isolated materially in a physical container and confined by means of magnetic fields. In this fluid-plasma which interacts with magnetic fields, fusion reactions are caused that release energy, while at the same time a quantity of movement and angular momentum is moved or “rotated” and transported. However, turbulence is caused in these magnetic confinement fusion processes that reduces system efficiency and prevents the obtaining of sufficient net energy from the nuclear reactions. This paper aims to propose new dynamic hypotheses to enhance our understanding of the behaviour of the plasma in the reactor. In doing so, we put forward a profound revision of classical dynamics. After over thirty years studying rotational dynamics, we propose a new theory of dynamic interactions to better interpret nature in rotation. This new theory has been tested experimentally returning positive results, even by third parties. We suggest that these new dynamic hypotheses, which we hold applicable to particle systems accelerated by rotation, be used in the interpretation and design of fusion reactors. We believe that this proposal could, in addition to magnetic confinement, achieve confinement by simultaneous and compatible dynamic interaction. Accordingly, we are of the opinion that it would be possible to get better performance and results in the design of fusion reactors by way of simultaneous magnetic and dynamic interaction confinement.
