Abstract:

A synchronous magnetogasdynamic a-c generator in which an emf is induced in the conductors of the stator winding through their interaction with a flow of ionized gas which is generated as the result of the combustion of a fuel with alkalimetal additives was developed. For the purpose of increasing the maximum power of the generator it was constructed without a rotor. The alternating-pole excitation system is made up of portions of increased electrical conductivity of the gas, which are created by intermittent combustion of the fuel and are penetrated by an electric current passed through the gas crosswise to the flow.
