Electricity is produced at low temperature by continuous power generation with use off MPD generator Recently announced was a scientific development stated to be capable of revolutionizing the generation of electricity. Scientists at the Martin Company demonstrated continuous power generation by a magnetoplasmadynamic generator, and verified the principle of magnetically induced nonequilibrium ionization of gas. It is anticipated that with further development, closed-cycle magnetoplasmadynamic (MPD) power generation at low temperature may lead to a reliable and economical method of producing electricity for Navy ships, spacecraft, lunar bases, and entire cities.
