Abstract

The application of liquid metal MHD energy-conversion technology over a wide spectrum of electric power and refrigeration systems has been analyzed. Different concepts utilizing this technology have been put forward, and a number have been tested. Complete systems were configured free of rotating machinery. Further simplifications resulted in systems free of two-phase flow mixing and separating devices, with some systems achieving circulation of liquid metal flow without pumps. Utilizing the design flexibility offered by this technology a number of specific application solutions are presented. Select results of computer simulations of power systems are presented as well.
