FUNDAMENTAL STUDIES OF SUPERCONDUCTING ELECTROMAGNETIC SHIP THRUSTER DRIVEN BY THE ALTERNATING MAGNETIC FIELD

This article reports on fundamental experiments and analytical studies carried out on the use of alternating magnetic fields (AMF) to drive electromagnetic ship thrusters. In contrast to the static magnetic method, no electrodes are needed for an AMF to make current flow through the sea water surrounding the thruster. The thrust arises as electromagnetic force due to the interaction between the AMF and the eddy current that is induced by the AMF in sea water.
