A time-dependent quasi-one-dimensional approximation of a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) compressible flow in a linear channel has been considered. for the numerical solution of the problem three different algorithms have been utilized (MacCormack's, Godunov's and Casulli's algorithms). they are based on the finite-difference method. these models are utilized for the prediction of the behavior of electrical, thermal, and dynamic quantities during transients and during the occurrence of faults in MHD channels. A comparison of the methods when analyzing a load variation for a Faraday channel is considered.
