Consider the dynamo action produced by convection of a partially-ionized, electrically conducting gas in a magnetic field. The model consists of two thin, Cartesian unipolar inductors connected in series by the magnetic field. For the case of a uniform magnetic field the total current system generated by an arbitrary gas flow is computed for the case of a non-uniform field, only the field-aligned coupling current is computed. Application is made to the solar atmosphere.
