Abstract : The Second Interim Report - Part 2 presents the results of a design analysis and design of a very compact high performance, 10 MW MHD generator system. The basis for this work has been firmly established by past MHD research and development programs including the most recent MHD Research and Development work reported in this Second Interim Report - Part I. The system being designed has a target dry weight for the total system of 1800 to 2200 kg. The design analysis and a study of fabrication techniques have led to novel designs for the components of the 10 MW MHD generator system which are reviewed in detail in the report. (Author)
