Abstract
IF A SPLIT TRANSFORMER IS EXPOSED TO SEA WATER, THE DEVICE MIGHT TRANSFER SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF ENERGY TO THE SECONDARY EVEN IN THE SAFE POSITION. TETRA PROPOSES TO BUILD A COMPUTER MODEL OF THE COUPLING PROCESS WHICH WILL ACCOMMODATE EXTREMES OF TEMPERATURE, SALINITY AND CONTAMINANTS AND GEOMETRIES AND ORIENTATIONS. THE THEORETICAL APPROACH PROPOSED IS BASED ON CALCULATING THE MAGNETIZATION, CONDUCTANCE AND DIELECTRIC PROPERTIES OF THE WATER, BUILDING FROM PROPERTIES OF INDIVIDUAL SPECIES. THE SENSITIVITY OF THE RESULTS SHALL BE STUDIED USING A FIRST ORDER MODEL, WHICH SHALL BE VALIDATED THEORETICALLY AND EMPIRICALLY. THE EMPIRICAL TEST SHALL BE A LIMITED EXPERIMENT IN PHASE I. THEORETICALLY, THE REGIONS OF VALIDITY OF KEY ASSUMPTIONS AND APPROXIMATIONS SHALL BE ESTIMATED, LEADING TO RECOMMENDED IMPROVEMENTS FOR A PHASE II MODEL.
