Space Thermo Acoustic Radio-Isotopic Power System: Space TRIPS
Magnetohydrodynamics 2019
Artūrs Brēķis, Jānis Freibergs, Antoine Alemany

The paper presents experimental results on testing a travelling wave thermoacoustic (TAc) engine using argon gas coupled with a 200W, low-power, magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) gene- rator using liquid sodium. The project is a terrestrial test and simulation of a radio isotopic- fed electrical power supply system for deep space applications. A large range of parameters were analyzed, such as TAc generated pressure oscillation amplitude as a function of the mean pressure and temperature of the heater.
