Electric current sheets develop in the solar corona when different
come into contact. At these sheets magnetic energy is transformed into
and kinetic energy by means of reconnection. We have previously demonstrated
how to accelerate neutral sheet energy conversion by means of a transition
turbulent reconnection via ideal, three-dimensional secondary instabilities,
conjectured by Montgomery. In this paper we describe how our previous results
are modified by the presence of a finite mean sheetwise magnetic field.
a stabilization from this field, due to a decrease in energy transfer from
magnetic field to the three-dimensional perturbed fields. An increase in
perturbed dissipative energy losses is also observed.
