MHD Power Generation: Past, Present, and Future. Global Cooperation on MHD Video - Dr. Carl-W. Hustad Super Magnet Video - A revolutionary magnet ten times stronger than normal could see MRI scanners become hand-held, and electric motors miniaturised. The process, developed at the University of Cambridge in the UK, uses a superconducting material and requires no current, simply to be super-cooled. The magnets are made of an alloy that only becomes magnetic when cooled with liquid nitrogen. which will keep the development in industrial applications for now although it won't limit its use, says Coombs who developed the nagnet. Dr Tim Coombs, says "when you bear in mind that what we use to cool it is as cheap as the milk that you buy from your local supermarket then you can get some idea of how cheap cooling it is". When also you bear in mind that we use nitrogen as an everyday thing in the lab and its relatively easy to use.”Dr Coombs says the advantages of size and power of his magnets could allow the development of machines that have not previously been possible", including MHD generators.
Integration of Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) Power Generating Technology with Thermal Power Plants for Efficiency Improvement
Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) Power Generating Technology
Magnetohydrodynamic Power Generation - International Journal of Scientific and Research Publications, June 2013 - "A system employing an MHD generator offers the potential of an ultimate efficiency in the range of 60 to 65% . This is much better than the 35 to 40% efficiency that can be achieved in a modern conventional thermal power station." Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
