This paper reviews the recently introduced concept of unsteady zero-head propulsion (HYPS©) and its particular attributes offering to revolutionize the conventional turbomachinery and fluid power technologies. The paper continues by underlining some of the fundamentals of the advanced concept that enable the system, in a unique way, to highly efficiently exploit the energy of turbulent and chaotic fluid flows. Extensive simulations and trial runs have highlighted the potential of the system in dealing with shortcomings of the traditional systems when encountered by random and multi-directional upstream flow conditions.
