The effects of the constant applied magnetic field as a function of its angle with the channel walls is studied using finite elements. This is done for insulating channel walls and for two insulating and two conducting walls forming a short-circuited magnetohydrodynamic generator. The volumetric flow rate is kept constant by regulating the pressure gradient as a function of the applied magnetic induction angle. The necessary pressure gradient diminishes as the angle increases from 0 to 45 degrees because the electrical current flow diminishes. This paper affords a simple and quick method for solving MHD generator problems that defied solution for many years.
