Type Spherical torus/Tokamak
Major radius 45 cm
Minor Radius 40 cm
Location Madison, Wisconsin, United States

The Pegasus Toroidal Experiment is a plasma confinement experiment relevant to fusion power production, run by the Department of Engineering Physics of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It is a spherical tokamak, a very low-aspect-ratio version of the tokamak configuration, i.e. the minor radius of the torus is comparable to the major radius.
