Noble-gas closed-cycle system of magnetohydrodynamic power generation Technical Report Pri, R Y ; Hess, R W Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) electric-power generation constitutes an important part of the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA) program to develop new energy sources and conversion devices.

The current concept for the design of a closed cycle system calls for a regenerative heat exchanger in which the same refractory surface will come in contact with both the combustion gases and the working fluid. The heat exchanger must be designed to ensure a low enough level of contamination carry over and leakage to maintain the noble gas loop.

The abundance of coal reserves throughout much of the world has favoured the development of coal-fired MHD systems for electric power production. Coal can be burned at a temperature high enough to provide thermal ionization. Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) power generation process is basically based on the physics background of space plasma.

The basic principle is the. sions from coal and gas plants. Closed-cycle liquid metal MHD systems using both single-phase and two-phase flows also have been explored. Still more novel applications are in development or on the horizon. For example, recent research has shown the possibility of seawater propulsion using MHD [5] and control ofFile Size: 3MB.

A magnetohydrodynamic generator is a magnetohydrodynamic converter that utilizes a Brayton cycle to transform thermal energy and kinetic energy directly into electricity.

MHD generators are different from traditional electric generators in that they operate without moving parts to limit the upper temperature.

They therefore have the highest known theoretical thermodynamic efficiency of any electrical generation method. MHD has been extensively developed as a topping cycle. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Pei, R.Y. Noble-gas closed-cycle system of magnetohydrodynamic power generation.

Santa Monica, Calif.: Rand Corp., section the main one, magnetohydrodynamic power generation, is mentioned very briefly to give an overall background picture of the interest in direct conversion II.

MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC POWER GENERATION The magnetohydrodynamic power generator[8] is a device that generates electric power by means of the interaction of a moving. Penguin Books. Magnetohydrodynamic power generation provides a way of generating electricity directly from a fast moving stream of ionised gases without the need for any moving mechanical parts - no turbines and no rotary generators.

Efficiency matters the most for establishing a power plant, the MHD power plant have an overall efficiency of %. But a thermal power plant has an efficiency of only 35% means the power generation by a thermal power plant is not efficient.

Solar power generation Around 30% Up to 50% 7. Wind power generation Around 30% ___ 8. Geo-thermal power generation Around 15% ___ VI.

ADVANTAGES. In MHD the thermal pollution of water is eliminated. (Clean Energy System) Use of MHD plant operating in conjunction with a gas turbine power plant might not require to reject any heat to cooling. INTRODUCTION 80 % of total electricity produced in the world is hydal, while remaining 20% is produced from nuclear, thermal, solar, geothermal energy and from magneto hydro dynamic (mhd) generator.

MHD power generation is a new system of electric power generation which is said to be of high efficiency and low pollution.
