The report contains a discussion of the results of a research program to determine the bulk properties of plasmas in the MFD disk generator driven by a high temperature, large mass flow, alkali shock tunnel. Also, the performance of the MFD disk generator is examined as a promising high Hall coefficient, high power density MFD power generator. Specifically, the study phases are Theoretical studies of two-temperature plasmas operating at high Hall coefficients one-dimensional analysis of non-equilibrium flows in a MFD disk generator theoretical study of the MFD disk generator as a practical power generator description of the large MFD generator facility experimental studies of high Hall coefficients in an argon-driven generator experimental studies of an argon-driven generator with upstream pre-ionization experimental studies of a nitrogen-driven generator.
