Unipolar / Homopolar Generators

Tesla worked with a fascinating rotating disk (non intertial frame of reference) Faraday type generators. In his papers he states this apparatus might behave as a "current accumulator". The theory of operation is not completely understood today; however, it deals with a subtle behavior of the magnetic field. This behavior has to do with the fact that magnetic field lines (as taught in schools everywhere) do not exist, but that magnetism is a continuous effect which either exists or does not exist in various concentrations. In particular and in the case of the unipolar generator it is shown experimentally that there is no effective difference between a stationary magnetic field and a magnetic field that is rotating axially with angular velocity. I would like to reach out to anyone who has studied this effect or is working on generators / n-machines of this type.
