Abstract:

As is evident from the explained matter, work on mgd generators in world technology has sharply progressed in recent years. According to conduction generators with thermal equilibrium ionization, in the most theoretically and experimentally processed, powers of experimental samples were obtained of up to 1350 kw. Probably, in the relatively close future, experimental stations of thermal power will be built of the order of 150 - 250 mw, although there are still many problems to be solved, mainly pertaining to materials. In this connection, reports are presented on further increase in electro-conductivity, expansion of temperature boundaries, reduction of dimensions and increase in effectiveness on the basis of nonequilibrium ionization, pulsating flow of plasma and transition to electrodeless systems.
