The design methodology for the disk MHD generator component of a burst power (1 GWe-power level) gas core reactor (BPGCR) is presented in this paper. A disk MHD generator model is used with simple models of other important BPGCR system components, in parametric analyses to estimate BPGCR system performance levels, and to obtain disk MHD generator design parameters; implications of this analysis are addressed.
