At thermal calculations of the induction MHD machines, the mean temperatures of main parts of the machine are often defined. Yet, with the increase of specific electromagnetic loads, with the use of new heat-resistant insulating materials and with the intention to use electrically short windings (a small number of poles that causes asymmetry of phase currents) in the pumps of mean power determining are the local temperature peaks in the winding, though the winding mean temperature is far from limiting. The paper considers the temperature distribution over the slot height in the induction MHD pump. Figs 2, Refs 13.
