why is pulsing important for the fusor to work correctly as farnsworth hoped?

after some earlier discussions, i have seen pulsing articles about high currents and melting of the grid. but i read about nasa using pulsing and the potential well to get near breakeven. is this possible?

there seems to be considerable interest in using pulsing. so what then happens to the fusor at the center to allow fusion when pulsing? and how does one get power?

a radical idea...

could the sustaining effect of the poissors and fusions between pulses allow this? making pulsing more efficient?
