Abstract:A predesign of a split-pair magnet for a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) facility for testing a 10-MW open-cycle disk or a 5-MW closed-cycle disk generator is presented. The magnet system consists of a NbTi and a Nb 3Sn section, which provide a magnetic field of 9 T in the active area of the MHD channel. The optimization process, which is based on minimum conductor costs is discussed, and the proposed conductor design is described. Basic solutions for the construction of the magnet, the cryostat and the cooling technique are also presented
