Design optimization of the MHD pump with a flat straight channel described in is discussed. The geometric parameters of the channel and cores were changed, which has made it possible to improve the P-Q characteristic of the pump. The pump model of the proposed design is suitable for pumping magnesium, tin and other non-ferrous metals and alloys and, therfere, it can be used as a submersible pump. Figs 9, Refs 6.
