(Extremely high EMF Fields generated in the saltwater gap between rotor and stator) that magnetic field is strong enough to induce up to 2 megawatts of power in the conductive copper windings and it will also induce high levels of EMF in the conductive saltwater gap.
“Because details of the TISEC devices are unknown, the magnitude of EMF levels cannot be accurately predicted” [This is actually bullshit, see the generator model above]
Natural Geomagnetic Earth Magnetic Flux Density: 25 to 65 microteslas
Magnetic Flux Density known to detrimentally effect Atlantic Halibut: 3 milliTesla
Unshielded, osciliating magnetic flux density across 6.5 ft. (2 m)saltwater gap from OpenHydro rotor/stator: 1.23 Tesla
EXCEEDS UNSAFE KNOWN LIMIT FOR HALIBUT BY (1.23/.003*100) = 41,667%!!!
“Levels of direct mortality of organisms passing through turbines could be high and disorientation might reduce species viability.” Agreed
“Shielded submarine cables generally emit very low levels of EMF. Cables that become damaged and emissions from tidal turbines and other components will contribute additional sources of EMF.” [it’s not the cables dumbassess, it’s the high powered magnets in the rotor]
Nova Scotia Dead zone meets my criteria:
- Are electrical engineers experimenting nearby (yes)
- Are electrical engineers generating 2,000,000 watts of electricity by submerging an electrical generator in conductive saltwater (YES)
- Are electrical engineers placing a high voltage substation/transformer underwater (YES)
- Are dead fish, lobster, starfish and whales mysteriously washing ashore (YES)
And if the dumbasses happened to place ICCP corrosion anodes on the turbine they will be pumping an additional few hundred amps into the seawater that will also contribute to dead stuff.
