An analysis is made of the boundary layer effect on the electrical characteristics of a Faraday MHD generator. An electrical substitution circuit and a method for calculating its elements are proposed. An analysis is made of the local circuit for the substitution of a channel in a gas-dynamic approximation. It is noted that the questions of the flow of current through a turbulent boundary layer require careful examination. It has been shown that the existing methods for the calculation of real resistance of a boundary layer, which are based on a break in integration on a certain arbitrary boundary from the electrode, give results which are strongly dependent on the selection of this boundary.
