Abstract

1321312 Electrogasdynamic generators NATIONAL RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT CORP 19 April 1971 [29 Jan 1970] 4224/70 Heading H2A An EGD generator includes an expansion stage 11 and a compression stage 9 for the carrier gas which are operated on the Ericsson cycle i.e. at substantially constant temperature, heat being supplied to the gas during expansion and removed therefrom during compression, and the two stages being connected together to form a closed loop including a counterflow heat exchanger 10 in which gas emerging from the expansion stage gives up heat to gas emerging from the compression stage. In the expansion stage a gas duct 21, Fig. 5, zig-zags between generating and heating parts 19, 20, the part 19 being divided into a number of generating sections by Faraday cages such as 22, 23, 28. Each section comprises charge emitting and collecting electrodes and a field is applied along each section to oppose the flow of gas-borne particles. As the particles pass through the duct they are charged alternately positively and negatively and returned to earth potential at which point they may pass through the heating section before entering further generating sections. A plurality of ducts 21 in parallel may be provided. The compression stage 9 is of similar construction except that in the part 20 the gas is cooled and in the part 19 the polarities of the charges emitted into the gas stream are reversed so that the particles move down a potential gradient in each section, the effect of the field being to compress the gas.
