Seawater Magnetohydrodynamics Power Generator / Hydrogen Generator
A seawater magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) power generator / hydrogen generator is expected to become popular with the development of superconducting technology because of low loss and high efficiency. We have designed a new helical-type seawater MHD generator using a solenoid superconducting magnet, by considering the experimental results for a helical-type MHD ship. The experimental and computational results for the helical-type generator including the results of a recent study on hydraulic characteristics are discussed.
