We present the results of an experimental study of an MHD pump model with a flat straight channel containing a few inclined partitions. The partitions are not joint to the narrow walls of the channel and are shifted to one of these walls. The channel is embraced from the outside by Π-shaped ferromagnetic cores arranged along the channel in a staggered manner. P-Q characteristics of the MHD pump model under study were obtained for the partitions of different lengths. The locations of the partitions with respect to the narrow walls of the channel and the inclination angle of the partitions were varied as well. Figs 5, Refs 4.
