Abstract:

The final Report on Energy Transfer Problems in Superconductors and Flowing Plasmas describes theoretical and experimental studies of energy storage and transfer in cryogenics and magnetohydrodynamics. In the cryogenic studies, electrical energy is stored in superconducting coils and extracted with a 98 energy transfer efficiency. Theoretical support is given for the switching, storage and extraction results. In the magnetohydrodynamic studies, electrical energy is extracted from the high temperature plasma flow through a DC MHD generator. Included in the study is a survey of DC and AC MHD Generators, an analysis of cylindrical AC MHD generators, and investigation of a pulsed induction AC MHD generator and the design and operation of a small scale DC MHD generator.
