Title: A hybrid MHD system for early plants or retrofits

Abstract

The current status of MHD technology and the engineering data that will be available within the next few years are sufficient to design and construct a hybrid MHD plant in which an MHD power train and a conventional steam boiler power train can be integrated at the steam level. The proposed program will speed the development of commercial MHD power generation and reduce both the risk and cost of the development program to the Government and the involved utilities. The result will be a more expedient and more economic availability of the MHD power generation technology. The hybrid concept can prove the commercial viability of the MHD technology for both retrofit and early commercial plants. The inclusion of an MHD power generation cycle in the next MPC generating plant will reduce the demand for coal, meet all air quality and environmental standards and produce electricity at a cost competitive with existing methods and less expensively than unproven and uncertain future coal generating concepts.
