Fluid energy converter which works irrespective of the direction of the flow: The device has the flow guiding vertical walls set radially with equal angle from the center. The trapped fluid has higher pressure and is sent into a chamber by pipes with check valves. Fluid in the chamber with high pressure is exhausted from a pipe with a propeller for energy conversion. This system does not need the swing of the axis of propeller. As for the resistance against the overturning moment, the heavy bodies set around the device will work for it.
