The present paper aims to analyse a way to improve the performance of magnetohydrodynamic systems by introducing a third level in a classic MHD/steam plant. The task of this further level is to reduce the energy loss between the MHD outlet (T > 2000 K) and the steam turbine inlet. Two layouts have been considered: the first one with an air open cycle and the second one with an air closed cycle. This last layout shows the best current efficiency, close to 60%, having an improvement of about 10% with respect to the two-level system. © 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.

Abstract

The present paper aims to analyse a way to improve the performance of magnetohydrodynamic systems by introducing a third level in a classic MHD/steam plant. The task of this further level is to reduce the energy loss between the MHD outlet (T > 2000 K) and the steam turbine inlet. Two layouts have been considered: the first one with an air open cycle and the second one with an air closed cycle. This last layout shows the best current efficiency, close to 60%, having an improvement of about 10% with respect to the two-level system. © 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
