The design and construction are presented for a high-temperature form of ac conduction machine. Test results are given for a sodium loop in the generator and pump modes. An oscilogram is presented for the self-excitation of the device. A method has been developed for calculating the expected parameters of the machine at high pressures on the basis of tests obtained at small pressure differences.
