The paper provides background information on the design, development and operation of the annular induction travelling field pump for liquid sodium. A mathematical model of the device has been developed and verified. Effects of various parameters on the capacity of the pump were investigated. Simulation results were used to design and manufacture a single-section pump, which was then tested in a gallium loop. Experimental results confirmed the correctness of the mathematical model. Mathematical modelling made it possible to design and manufacture multi-section pumps with required characteristics. Figs 10, Refs 19.
