Abstract : The operation of three diagonal wall generators is given. The normal to the equipotential surfaces makes angles of 0 degrees, 30 degrees, and 45 degrees with the flow direction respectively. In addition to the time averaged behavior of these generators, experimental investigation of instabilities is discussed and experiments on the conductivity of working fluid are outlined.
