Abstract : Formulas are derived for the signal due to plasma flow with tensor conductivity. Two transducer geometries are considered: the E-lamination and the pancake-coil. For the E-lamination transducer, the conductivity is reduced by a factor regardless of plasma flow angle relative to the transducer reference axis. For the pancake-coil transducer, the conductivity is reduced by the same factor. By using a combination DC and AC primary magnetic field, an average value can be measured with the electrical conductivity/velocity instrument. (Author)
