Title:
DISC TYPE MHD GENERATOR
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JPH07163130
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

PURPOSE: To allow generation of swirl flow of working gas without requiring any guide vane by providing an introduction duct for producing a swirl around a swirl chamber provided for a flow-in duct.

CONSTITUTION: A swirl chamber (RR) 8 is provided above a gas flow-in duct 2, while communicating therewith, located in the center of a disc type MHD generator. The RR 8 is provided, on the outer periphery at the upper part thereof, with an introduction duct 9 extending in the tangential direction of swirl in order to produce a swirl flow in the RR 8. In other words, the introduction duct 9 is disposed such that a working gas 10 is introduced in the tangential direction of a circular chamber in the RR 8. The introduction duct 9 and the RR 8 are made of a refractory material or a ceramic material because the working gas 10 has high temperature in the range of 2000-3000°K. The working gas 10 introduced through the introduction duct 9 flows down while swirling in the RR 8 and flows through the gas flow-in duct 2 into a power generating section 1 while accelerating the swirling speed at the lower tapered part thus contributing to generation of power.
