Should I talk about nuclear fusion in a Physics personal statement, or is that more..

Or is that more suited to a nuclear engineering course?

I'd say its perfectly fine to mention in a Physics personal statement, as it falls under nuclear physics. The entire nuclear engineering sub-discipline is concerned with nuclear physics.

Do you know if students are taught about how fusion can generate power?

Physics students or nuclear engineering students? Also keep it brief, a couple sentences at most on this topic.

Physics students.
Depends on the course, look at the course content of individual universities you're applying to. It's very likely that nuclear physics/fusion will be an optional or compulsory module somewhere along the line though, and ofcourse it's not going to look bad on your application - it is directly related to physics.

TBH for Physics your PS doesn't even matter that much - it comes down to grades ultimately.

Tell them you've perfected cold fusion.
