Abstract:

A discussion is given of calculations of MHD generators with unbalanced conductivity taking into account ionization instability. As a working medium argon and mercury vapor containing addition of cesium vapors are examined. Theory and experiment show that ionization instability is developed with such parameters of plasma which are assumed to be used in MHD generators with unbalanced conductivity. New approaches toward the selection of MHD generators are touched upon. Author
