A short synopsis pertaining to the concept, analysis and development of the new advanced zero head HYdro-Propulsive System (HYPS) has been drawn. Within this system, of particular importance are the implemented revolutionary feedback control systems. These systems provide the HYPS with a unique ability to efficiently receive and capture the kinetic energy embedded in multi-directional, random and turbulent fluid flow motions. The system is equipped with specially designed bladings (propulsors) that are attached through the feedback controllers to the extending radial arms, allowing the blades to adjust their orientations according to the oncoming flow. It has been demonstrated, through implicit analysis and extensive tests, that this system can effectively maximise the favourable aero-hydrodynamic forces on its impellers and, in turn, achieve a much higher energy conversion rate compare to those of the conventional devices.
