Consequent on MHD geometry sensibility phenomena was measured in an accident case; the more detail experiments have been conducted at the liquid metal experimental loop upgrade facility (LMEL-U). The experimental results indicate that MHD pressure drop can be greatly reduced in the special designed ducts. Base on the experimental data, an innovation channel concept (tentatively called as the secondary flow channel, short in “S-channel”) is addressed as a reducing MHD pressure drop channel for the application of a liquid metal blanket system in fusion reactor. It may be a dawn for solving MHD pressure drop key issue of liquid metal blanket system.
