In this talk, I will draw distinction between linear plasma waves and strong turbulent fluctuations and argue general characteristics of 3He rich solar energetic particle events favor the scenario that 3He ions are mostly energized via cyclotron resonance with proton cyclotron waves. These waves can be produced via magnetic reconnection at the ion diffusion scale and/or via cascade of turbulence energy from low to high frequencies. Both PIC and hybrid simulations can be used to verify these scenarios.
