Radioisotopic Magnetohydrodynamic Power

Radioisotopic magnetohydrodynamic (RMHD) power

The energy stored within a few grams of a radioactive isotope could be enough energy to produce many kilowatts of power for a long time. The hidden energy within radioisotopes can be harnessed using the ions that they generate. These ions are in the 4th state of matter called “plasma,” and when channeled through a magnetic field, electric current is induced and conducted. In a conventional dynamic generator electrons are pumped in a similar manor.

The electrons in the dynamic generators’ armature wire are forced to travel in one direction under the influence of a magnetic field. A moving electrical conductor through a magnetic field will dynamically create electricity. Electromotive current is created in a wire that cuts through magnetic lines of force. A surge of electrons along the length of wire sets up a voltage difference between the ends of the wire. Dynamic generators convert kinetic energy of the moving armature wire into electrical energy. The wire must be kept spinning to produce electrical power. This is done by attaching a shaft to the armature and driving it with a turbine driven by steam or water, etc.

Conventional Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) systems use high-velocity electrically conducting gas to produce electrical power. These systems are classified as direct because the rotating generator electrodynamic mechanisms are replaced with a flowing electrically conductive gas. In the MHD channel the electrons in the hot plasma gas are deflected under the influence of a magnetic field applied perpendicular to its flow, the electrons move through the gas and are deflected to one of the electrodes that carries the electrical current to the load. The advantage here over a conventional dynamic generator is that there are no moving parts, except for the flowing charged gas ions through the magnetic field.

Generally, this system has relied on fossil fuel burners. There are many problems associated with this system making it impractical. One drawback is that burning fossil fuel is dirty. This is simply not acceptable. Furthermore, the high temperatures involved are a technological conundrum, high combustion temperatures lead to the production of oxides of nitrogen that must be removed. Adequate designs to remove sulfur and nitrogen are questionable to say the least.

Through my research with radiant energy I have discovered a solution to the objectionable problems inherent in MHD systems. In recent days I have been working on my own Radioisotopic Magnetohydrodynamic (RMHD) design that gets its energy from the ions that are expelled from the surface of radioisotopic material, but unlike the conventional MHD system, there is no heat, and there is no chemical reaction with the electrodes to be concerned about. Nothing has to be burned and there is no dirty by-products generated.
