The invention provides an energy transfer apparatus having an energy transfer chamber (optionally bounded by an energy transfer tube) in which rotating flow is established. Preferably, the apparatus has a cold-fluid-discharge end and a hot-fluid-discharge end. Also provided are methods of using such apparatuses.
What is claimed is: 1. An apparatus for transferring energy by rotating fluid within the apparatus, the apparatus having a cold-fluid-discharge end and a hot-fluid-discharge end, the apparatus including an energy transfer tube and first and second fluid flow generators, the first and second generators each being adapted to create a rotating fluid flow at least part of which is located inside the energy transfer tube, both generators being adjacent to the cold-fluid-discharge end, the second generator being closer to the cold-fluid-discharge end than is ...
