We investigate MHD turbulence in spectrally stable plane shear flows and Keplerian disk flows, threaded by a non-zero azimuthal/vertical net magnetic flux. In order to gain a eeper insight into the underlying dynamical balances and sustaining mechanism, we performed a set of numerical imulations in the shearing box model and based on the imulation data, analyzed in detail the turbulence dynamics in Fourier space. We discuss the application/extension of his approach and results to the MRI -turbulence in Keplerian flows with zero net magnetic flux and associated dynamo action.
