Abstract: An improved power plant incorporating a gas turbine and a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) generating means is provided wherein a plurality of coolant conducting fins are disposed in the diffuser region of the duct between the MHD generator and the turbine. The cooling fins are provided with means to supply compressed coolant to the diffuser duct for mixing with the combustion gases to provide optimum gas pressure, temperature and velocity for driving the turbine.
