Numerically obtained streamline map under the typical MHD power-generating condition: (a) linearly divergent channel and (b) convexly divergent channel.
(a) The cross-sectional view of the generator and the deformed profiles of the convexly and linearly diverged wall surfaces. The radial (streamwise) profiles of (b) static pressure normalized by total inflow pressure and (c) Hall potential and the Hall electric field strength. Closed and open points are obtained by using the convexly and linearly divergent channels, respectively. The seed fraction is approximately . The load resistance is .
(a) Relationship between IE and EER. (b) Relationship between IE, EER, and total pressure ratio. Closed and open circles are obtained by using the convexly and linearly divergent channels, respectively.
