Closed cycle MHD power generation system driven by nuclear reactor for space exploration

2004 IEEE Region 10 Conference TENCON 2004., 2004

For deep space explorations, we have to develop high-efficiency, high- reliability and high-performance electric power generation system. In this paper, a closed cycle magnetohydrodynamic (CCMHD) power generation system directly driven by a nuclear fission reactor (NFR) was proposed and investigated. Output electric power level is multi-MWe. Particularly, influence of the number of compressor stages, the regenerator efficiency and the radiator ...


Dense-plasma spheromak in plasma focus experiments

International Conference on Plasma Science (papers in summary form only received), 1995

Summary form only given, as follows. Experimental evidence is presented for the formation, formerly predicted, of a closed, spheromak-like magnetic configuration (SLMC) by the plasma-focus-self-transformed magnetic field. The SLMC formation is characterized by (1) self-consistent generation of a poloidal magnetic field (the dynamo effect); (2) strong filamentation of electric currents; (3) stimulating role of the enhanced propagation rate of the ...

  • Closed cycle MHD power generation system driven by nuclear reactor for space exploration

    For deep space explorations, we have to develop high-efficiency, high- reliability and high-performance electric power generation system. In this paper, a closed cycle magnetohydrodynamic (CCMHD) power generation system directly driven by a nuclear fission reactor (NFR) was proposed and investigated. Output electric power level is multi-MWe. Particularly, influence of the number of compressor stages, the regenerator efficiency and the radiator temperature on total plant efficiency and on specific mass (kg/kWe) was analyzed. Proposed system was expected to provide over 55% of total plant efficiency with the radiator temperature of 300 K. The estimated specific mass was about 2/spl sim/3 (kg/kWe) for 2 MWe output and 1/spl sim/2 (kg/kWe) for output power over 3 MWe level.

  • Dense-plasma spheromak in plasma focus experiments

    Summary form only given, as follows. Experimental evidence is presented for the formation, formerly predicted, of a closed, spheromak-like magnetic configuration (SLMC) by the plasma-focus-self-transformed magnetic field. The SLMC formation is characterized by (1) self-consistent generation of a poloidal magnetic field (the dynamo effect); (2) strong filamentation of electric currents; (3) stimulating role of the enhanced propagation rate of the magnetic field along the anode, due to the Hall effect; (4) a magnetic field reconnection process leading to the formation of the SLMC as a closed configuration, appears to occur before the the current sheath converges on the axis; (5) in its final stage, the SLMC takes the form of a squeezed spheromak configuration compressed and forced away from the anode by the residual azimuthal magnetic field; (6) the power density in the combined Z-/spl part/ pinch at major axis of the SLMC exceeds, by several orders of magnitude, the peak power density in the experiments on the force-free flux-conserver- confined spheromak; (7) the SLMC exhibits a cyclical tendency to form, be repelled from the anode, and reform repeatedly. The results suggest a possibility of further concentrating the plasma power density by means of compressing the SLMC-trapped plasma by the residual magnetic field.

  • Conceptual design of the Scholz MHD retrofit plant

    The technical feasibility of an MHD (magnetohydrodynamic) system operating in a commercial electric utility environment was evaluated by means of a site- specific conceptual design study. The study involved the retrofit of an MHD system to an existing coal-fired power plant, the Scholz generating station (Florida, USA), which was selected following evaluations of more than 200 sites. Following site selection, the design team performed technical analysis, evaluation, design, and calculations in sufficient detail to assess the operational characteristics, environmental effects, and economics of a coal- fired, MHD system utilizing Illinois No.6 coal as the feedstock. Produced during the study were process, system, and equipment descriptions; a plant layout; and cost and schedule data for design, fabrication, installation, and initial operation. The study found that an MHD retrofit can demonstrate the technology basis for future commercialization of MHD.<<ETX>>
