Abstract : This collection of articles discusses the following aspects of MHD generators in successive sections: Theory and calculation of flows, experimental investigations, investigation of physical processes and diagnostics, study of basic MHD unit equipment, liquid metal MHD units, study of cycles and systems of power plants with MHD generators and MHD generator materials. Aspects of MHD generators which occur repeatedly are studied of the insulating walls, electrode walls, electrode materials and configurations, plasma electrical conductivity with various alkali metal additives and combustion products of various fuels.
