Electro y rodynamic (EHD) po er generation is a process for converting dynamic en rgy of a flowi g fluid directly in o el ctric l power. I T DIFF RS FROM MAGNETO YDRODYNAMICS IN THAT ONLY E ER LLY APPLI D ELEC RIC FIELDS ARE USED O INTERACT WITH THE FLUID An experimental E generator was built by the Aeron utical R se rch Laboratory of the Office of RO PACE Rese rch, U AF. It u ed air for he working fluid, and partially ionized it t rough he use of ultiple corona discharge needles. The objective of his study was to determine t e characteristics nd rends of ion production and flow in th t gener tor. Thi study o ed that EHD co versio of fluid flow energy to el ctrical pow r is possible, and t at multiple needle coro a isc arg is a pr ctical hod of ionization for he process. (Author)
