"Light bulb" heat exchanger for magnetohydrodynamic generator applications : preliminary evaluation by J. Marlin Smith( Book )

4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The light-bulb heat-exchanger concept is investigated as a possible means of using a combustion heat source to supply energy to an inert gas MHD power generator system. In this concept, combustion gases flow through a central passage which consists of a duct with transparent walls through which heat is transferred by radiation to a radiation receiver which in turn heats the inert gas by convection. The effects of combustion-gas emissivity, transparent-wall-transmissivity, radiation-receiver emissivity, and the use of fins in the inert gas coolant passage are studied. The results indicate that inert gas outlet temperatures of 2500 K are possible for combustion temperatures of 3200 K and that sufficient energy can be transferred from the combustion gas to reduce its temperature to approximately 2000 K. At this temperature more conventional heat exchangers can be used

Completely Magnetically Contained Electrothermal Thrusters( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Conceptual designs of potentially attractive high-performance thrusters are defined. These are a kw steady-state radiation-cooled DC thruster and a MW quasi-steady DC thruster. These thrusters offer the potential for long operating life with low erosion rates and 50 to 100% improvements in performance over prior plasma thrusters. The kw thruster would be a prototype of a radiation-cooled electric thruster for future electric propulsion missions. The MW thruster would be an inexpensive experiment to define the potential of subsequent very-high power, steady-state thrusters which would utilize superconducting magnets. The kw thruster would use xenon propellent and the MW thruster would use argon propellent. Both should operate at efficiencies of 50 to 80% in the 2500 to 3000 second specific impulse range. Keywords include: Electric propulsion; Plasma, Electrothermal, and MPD thrusters
