The report attempts to summarise the recent developments in the field of MHD electric power generation and identify the problem areas needing further R and D efforts to achieve commercial acceptance of the process. During the last two decades there has been active interest in the development of this technology. A large volume of literature is available in published form, apart from the unpublished information of commercial value. Judging from this standpoint this report cannot be considered

Nevertheless it integrates the scattered information in a condensed volume which would be useful in extrapolating the future trends of development while assessing the present status of the technology. To make this report self-contained and complete, the fundamental principles of MMD power generation have also been included.
