litz wire

[′lits ‚wīr]
(electricity)
Wire consisting of a number of separately insulated strands woven together so each strand successively takes up all possible positions in the cross section of the entire conductor, to reduce skin effect and thereby reduce radio-frequency resistance. Derived from litzendraht wire.

However, the kite frame can only be grounded high-ohmic (which might be an unacceptable risk for testing personnel) or with at least one additional ground wire in the tether, and the electrical cable insulation would need to be much thicker or all electrical wires would need to be embedded in materials with similar or the same permittivity to sustain the electric field imposed by the voltage in the tether wires, because the electric field might then be not anymore (almost purely) radial from the litz wire. Therefore, also an approach with cables without shield is not considered in this study.
where [L.sub.te] is the tether length, [A.sub.c,w] is the litz wire's cross section area, [K.sub.c,w] is the specific conductivity of the material, and [f.sub.c,w] [greater than or equal to] 1 is a correction factor which accounts, for example, for the usual construction of a litz wire from a number ofstrands with which not the complete area might be filled with the conducting material (i.e., the fill factor is [less than or equal to] 1), increased temperature, manufacturing inaccuracies, material defects, the helical placement through which the length of the electrical cables is longer than the length of the tether, and onboard and on-ground cabling.
As only round wires are considered, a litz wire's cross section area is
Finally, because we chose to use Litz wire, we expected to see little variation at different frequencies.
Litz wire coil inductance is 21uH and this coil type was used in experimental tests.

A Litz wire structure is adopted in the receiver to reduce the ohmic loss of the receiver, as in [7].
The existing solution exceeds the simulation results (blue curve) at corresponding frequency (~800 kHz) because a Litz wire is used [15] instead of a plain coil, as was used in simulation.
The network is demonstrated with copper and litz wires to obtain a high quality-factor.
