Abstract:

ELECTROMAGNETIC THRUSTERS REPRESENT A PROMISING MEANS FOR THE NOISELESS PROPULSION OF SUBMERSIBLE. THE POWER AND EFFICIENCY OF ELECTROMAGNETIC THRUSTERS IS DETERMINED BY THE CONDUCTIVITY OF THE FLUID AND BY THE STRENGTH OF THE MAGNETIC FIELD. THE LOW CONDUCTIVITY OF SEAWATER IS THE MAIN LIMITATION. WE PROPOSE, THEREFORE, TO ENHANCE THE CONDUCTIVITY OF SEAWATER BY ELECTROCHEMICAL GENERATION OF A STRONG BASE USING ALKALI METAL BASED SACRIFICIAL ELECTRODES. IN PHASE I WE WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DOUBLING THE CONDUCTIVITY OF FLOWING SEAWATER WITH LI BASED ELECTRODES. ION CONDUCTIVE SURFACE COATINGS WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR SAFE BUT RAPID START UP UPON EXPOSURE TO WATER.
