From the Abstract:
Since the MHD efficiency may approach W=1, the electrical conversion of the power of the plasma into electricity may approach the efficiency of pressure-thermal to kinetic energy conversion wherein the corresponding nozzle efficiencies of 99% have been realized.A novel thermodynamic cycle enables closed liquid magnetohydrodynamic power conversion of thermal power into electrical power at a power density that is orders of magnitude higher than previously possible at an efficiency approaching unity.
