Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) power generation is a direct energy conversion directly from a fast moving ionized gases or plasma, without the need of any turbine and electrical generator. It works on the basis of Faraday’s laws of electromagnetic induction. Despite the facts that several countries throughout the world initiated the development of MHD systems in the mid of twentieth century, but associated techno-economical constraints hampered the development ...
