This book was planned and drafted even before the oil crisis at the end of 1973 drama tically highlighted the importance of research in the field of power production. This turn of events has by no means detracted from the value of the material presented. On the contrary, research on the rational exploitation of energy resources has gained in importance. The development of MHD generators is one of the fields which, it is hoped, will make an important contribution. It is nowadays no longer sufficient, however, just to perform good work. The national treasury, i.e. the taxpayer, allocates considerable funds for scientific research, and the public is therefore entitled to a reasonable account of the results achieved in R&D work. A monograph such as this seems to be the most suitable vehicle for the purpose. Furthermore, in keeping with modern research a group from Max-Planck-Institut fur Plasmaphysik combined with a group from a major industrial company, Maschinen fabrik Augsburg-Ntirnberg AG (M.A.N.), to launch a joint project. The close coopera tion between research establishments and industry will doubtless be intensified.

Magnetohydrodynamic Electrical Power Generation Hugo K. Messerle University of Sydney, Australia The global demand for energy continues to grow. Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) conversion processes offer a highly efficient, clean and direct conversion of energy for power generation and propulsion. By converting the kinetic energy of a flowing fluid into electricity directly, MHD systems help address the problems of environmental pollution. At the same time MHD is particularly suitable for primary energy sources or fuels providing energy at temperatures extending far beyond those manageable by any conventional thermal conversion plant. It therefore offers a potentially more effective utilisation of fossil and nuclear fuels. The author covers all aspects of MHD power generation, including the design and operation of MHD conversion systems in practice. Features include: A comprehensive introduction to the principles behind the interaction of magnetic field and electric currents with electrically conducting fluids in the conversion of energy. Coverage of all aspects of generator configurations, as well as the disk generator, multi-phase converters, and propulsion systems. Study of the design for AC power generation, covering the control and power conditioning of the generator and the integration of such designs into existing power systems. Study of the use of MHD plant as part of a topping cycle combined with a steam and/or gas turbine or ternary cycle potentially leading to combined cycle efficiencies of up to 60%. Relevant worked examples in each chapter to assist the reader with self-study and the understanding of the topic. This text will appeal to advanced students in power engineering, physics and mechanics. Practising engineers and scientists is the field of power technology will find if an excellent practical reference and a basis for developing ideas on large scale MHD processes. Magnetohydrodynamic Electrical Power Generation forms a part of the Energy Engineering Learning Package. This innovative distance learning package has been established to train power engineers to meet today’s and tomorrow’s challenges in this exciting field. Organised by a team of distinguished, international academics, the modular course is aimed at advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as power engineers working in industry.

The Second Interim Report - Part I presents the further results of a combined analytical and experimental program whose broad objectives are: (1) to achieve a more complete understanding of the operation and appropriate design techniques of compact high performance MHD generators by further establishing the detailed analytical basis of the performance of these generators; and (2) to demonstrate the feasibility of operating compact high performance MHD generators under a repetitively pulsed mode of operation at high power levels -- in this case at the 2 MW level. In Interim Report No. 1, the design and fabrication of a 2 MW MHD generator and test facility was discussed. In this report, Interim Report No. 2 - Part I, are presented the results and discussions of tests performed using the 2 MW MHD generator and test facility. (Modified author abstract).

Research and development in open-cycle coal-fired MHD power generation is described. The scope and objectives of the MIT program are: (1) establish chemical, thermal, and electrical data to guide materials selection, develop improved detail designs, and support performance analyses of MHD electrode modules and insulator materials; (2) parametrically investigate selected electrode properties of critical design importance in chemical, thermal, and electrical environments simulating a coal-fired MHD generator; (3) develop combustion data pertinent to the design of MHD combustors; (4) establish techniques for the analysis and understanding of critical MHD phenomena which have an important bearing on MHD generator performance; such phenomena include inter-electrode breakdown, time-dependent behavior, effective plasma properties and plasma inhomogeneities; (5) establish the operating characteristics of an MHD disk generator; (6) continue work on computer techniques for modeling and for design and cost analysis of MHD components and the overall system; (7) integrate the engineering data and design criteria, as applicable, which are developed in the listed tasks into a model of the MHD channel; (8) participate in the US/USSR Cooperative Program in MHD Power Generation; and (9) participate in technical support of the DOE MHD Project Office. Progress in each of these areas is reported.
