    Abstract

    A conductor material is used in the electricity transmission sector as a transfer media. The conductivit, o Fthe material depends on the atomic microstructure in metal crystalline form. When the electricity transfers through the metal conductor. each atom in its crystalline microstructure will tremble and stretch, leading to a disordered microstructure that causes momentum and electron wave diffraction. This occurrence leads to energy losses. The biggest energy :oss es in electricity occur thraugh transmission, and this depends on path and resistance of the conductor material. Many attempts have been made to reduce energy losses from transmission, such as using the highest conductive material and capacitor bank. The combination of polypropylene, sodium hydroxide and quartz at certain proportions on Cu material at high temperature using blasting Furnace was studied. The method produces Cu material of closed face-centered cubic crystalline microstructure. The greater number of voids in such a microstructure causes the conductive Cu material to become capacitive as well. This new material may reduce energy losses in electricity transmission. Polrypropylene, which has polymeric chain and orthorhombic microstru.cture with CI-13 cluster in its sequences, wi:1 release carbocation at melting temperature to homogenous Cu and quartz combination. Sodium hydroxide was added to reduce the melting temperature of quartz to 1088 as sodium silicate. In the blasting furnace method. the approximate compositions of polypropylene - 3/4x at % quartz, radium hydroxide - 19.71 at % Cu and quartz - 15 at % Cu display the best capacitive value and performance with RLC meter and X-Ray Mapping analysis.
