Modern Technological Developments Driving Innovation

Our computers can now computationally predict efficiencies for MHD power generators. With these advancements along with advancements in superconductive magnets, new types of plasmas, and materials will enable us to build the world's most efficient MHD generator. This program involves the development of a major system encompassing several complex subsystems. Each system is of sufficient complexity to require state of the art manufacturing, controls development and life cycle cost analysis.

MHD Power System Technology Directly Converts Thermal/Kinetic Power to Useable Electrical Power! About 75% of electrical energy is generated by thermal stations.

Significant progress has been made in MHD development of all critical components and sub system technologies.

The generation of electric power by passing a conducting fluid though a magnetic is not a new concept. In the late 1970's you would need 27 megawatts of electricity of power using a Electromagnet to produce a continuous 3. 7 tesla magnetic field. However today with state of the art Superconducting Magnets breakthrough technology, we can produce the same continuous 3. 7 tesla magnetic field for a fraction of the power needed in the late 1970's. The more powerful the magnetic field the greater the power output of a MHD Generator. MHD power generation systems can improve the efficiency of other conventional power systems.

“In the MHD generator the advantage of having no moving parts allows to work at higher temperatures than a conventional energy conversion. It is possible to work with temperature around 3000K, and at these temperature the maximum theoretical efficiency would be near 90%”. - International Journal of Scientific and Research Publications

"MHD (Magneto-Hydrodynamic) Electric Generator will operate more efficiently than conventional power plants." - NASA

Topping MHD generators can be used in conjunction with steam operated thermal plants utilizing the heat of the gas leaving the MHD ducts. The combined operation of MHD generators along with the conventional thermal plant, will raise the overall efficiency.

The company has developed a solar power technology that utilizes what is known as magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). This cutting edge technology uses superconducting magnets to increase the efficiency of conversion from sunlight to electricity by stripping electrons from high-energy plasma jets and thereby generating power with no moving parts. In this sense the magnets and plasma are deployed in the process of extraction of electricity from superheated charged gas. This allows the generation of power directly from a body of hot ionized gas.

Magneto-Hydro-Dynamics (MHD) is derived from Magneto-meaning magnetic field, Hydro-meaning liquid, and Dynamics-meaning movement. MHD generates electricity directly from a body of very hot moving gas without any mechanical moving parts. Magnetohydrodynamics works by using magnets to extract electricity from superheated charged gas. In a sense MHD replaces the wires used in conventional electrical generators with ionized gas.

MHD Faraday Generator

MHD is thermodynamically more efficient than nuclear or conventional steam power plants. The MagentoHydroDynamic power generation technology provides attractive alternative generation potential to the electric power utilities.

"Today, near all of our power plants (coal, natural gas, hydroelectric, wind, concentrated solar, nuclear, bio-mass) use mechanical turbines to generate electrical power. In the future, if developed, we may use a more efficient generator which operates without moving parts. This is called a MHD generator" - DOE

Maximum Use of Technology

High-temperature direct-energy conversion capability of an MHD dynamo combined with an already sophisticated steam-powered turbine industry knowledge base allows the cascading cycle design to achieve breakthrough first-law energy efficiencies previously unheard of in the power industry!

"Of all the direct energy conversion methods exploitable, the MHD Power Generation seems to be the most promising for a utility system" - Power Plant Engineering - Third Edition By P.K.Nag

The highly-engineered MHD Hybrid Power Plants can utilize any heat source, such as combustion of a fuel e.g., oil, coal, natural gas, chemical reaction, high-grade waste heat, solar, and geothermal. It can also utilize Atomic MHD - Nuclear-Uranium Plasma - self-sustained fissioning plasma for closed cycle MHD power generation using a plasma core reactor.
