Abstract:

These known magnetohydrodynamic-generator MHDG configurations are briefly examined 1 Continuous-electrode channel, Faraday emf 2 Sectionalized-electrode channel, loads fed with Faraday emfs 3 Sectionalized-electrode channel, Hall emf 4 Montardi scheme. The potentialities of these two combined configurations are considered 5 A coaxial channel with a two-component magnetic field in which the emf is generated by both Faraday and Hall effects no insulating wall is needed, and a small-size super-conducting magnetic system is applicable 6 Same, but the electrodes are sectionalized as in 2. The latter two schemes are explored analytically. It is found that 1 Scheme 5 with continuous electrodes obviates the difficulties connected with insulating walls and inserts in the channel however, its specific per unit volume electric power is only 112 to 13 as high as that in other MHDG schemes the specific power can be stepped up considerably if a higher temperature - and, therefore, higher gas conductivity - be used 2 The characteristics of scheme 6 approach those of scheme 3 however, scheme 6 has no advantages stemming from the absence of insulating inserts 3 The axial symmetry of the working flow and the applicability of simple torus superconducting magnetic systems are the two advantages of magnetohydrodynamic flows using the Hall effect and two-component field.
