Abstract:

An electro-magneto-hydro-dynamic electrical power source is constructed from a platform having a surface on which a permanent magnet is attached. The permanent magnet comprising a width and a length measured perpendicular to the width. A pair of electrodes are disposed running along the length of the permanent magnet and are spaced from each other by the width of the permanent magnet. An electric load is provided in communication with the pair of electrodes. The permanent magnet and pair of electrodes are configured to deliver electric power to the load when exposed to a flow of electrically conductive fluid in a direction parallel to the pair of electrodes.
