Abstract : A comprehensive survey of the current development status of all MHD power cycles was made to assess the relative merit of the various cycles for naval applications. Dynamic System model was formulated to analyze the system performance. First, detailed component model was formulated and component designs were performed to determine the geometric configuration of each component. Next, a method based on variational 27 principle and the steady-state system solutions was developed to determine the component node models. A manageable dynamic system model and a simplified linear system model were then formulated. Finally, system stability analysis on the linear node model was performed to examine the local system stability. (Author)
