Good luck in your quest!
Sometimes it's best to just be very straightforward  in explanation.  Key points that may help justify the university approving  the work are:
(1) relaxation time is a known phenomenon, well-documented.  So that part is unquestionable.


(2) Electrostatic charging is also a known phenomenon.  You get a little work (cost) by the stressing or straining of materials, but that is all.


(3) By using sufficient delay time to allow switching, one can excite the circuit electrostatically, then allow the circuit to decay that excitation energy electrodynamically.


(4) It is a fact that a circuit, suddenly finding excitation upon it, will dissipate that excitation energy.  Else none of our electric circuits could do anything at all.


(5) This is a novel use of an EM circuit.


(6) It also is a worthy technical project, because it harkens back to what was actually done to APPLIED electrodynamics when Lorentz symmetrically regauged the Maxwell-Heaviside equations.


(7) It is also a worthy doctoral thesis project, because of its significance for the foundations of electrodynamics and the correct interpretation of electrodynamics, particularly in light of later developments such as gauge field theory.


(8) It also applies one of the foundations axioms of gauge field theory:
gauge freedom, which in electrodynamics means that the potential -- and hence the potential energy -- of a Maxwellian system can be freely changed at will.  In real life, you just have to pay a little switching costs. But it applies the principle -- and in fact tests it.  If this experiment DID NOT work, when properly executed, then it would destroy one of the foundations axioms of gauge field theory, with profound impact on much of physics.
It also has implications for one of those things that any university is stuck with; the demand of the administration for bringing in outside funds.  A successful experiment here would unleash a tirade of furious research and funding -- from DOE alone.  Not to mention patent activity, etc.  Not to mention the implications for power systems, etc.
It also proves another very major thing: all that burning of hydrocarbons, use of nuclear fuel rods, building of dams and windmills, etc. is only to turn the shaft of the generator.  And contrary to all present scientific teachings, turning the shaft of the generator does not add a single watt to the external power line!  Instead, it just continuously remakes the source dipole between the terminals of the generator, that our present closed current loop power systems and circuits are fiendishly designed to kill faster than the external load is powered.

In short, it proves what has already been known in particle physics for nearly a half century: the broken symmetry of that source dipole.  It proves that the dipole, once formed, absorbs EM energy from the vacuum in unusable virtual photon form, transduces it into usable observable photon form, and pours it out in all directions.

This then solves the most difficult problem in all of electrodynamics (both quantal and classical): the question of the association of the fields and potentials and their vast energy (considered they may reach across the universe), with their source charges.  You can adapt my paper, "Giant Negentropy from the Common Dipole" (attached) to show (do it more elegantly and mathematically) that all EM energy in 3-space comes from the time domain (from time-energy).

Very strong support for my reinterpretation of Whittaker's 1903 decomposition of the scalar potential (i.e., the scalar potential between the ends of that source dipole), is also given by Mandl and Shaw, Quantum Field Theory, Wiley, 1984, in Chapter 5. Mandl and Shaw argue that the longitudinal and scalar polarizations are not directly observable, but only in combination, where they manifest as the "instantaneous" Coulomb (i.e., electrostatic) potential.  Our comment is that this argument, translated from particle terminology to wave terminology, directly fits my re-interpretation of Whittaker's 1903 decomposition of the scalar potential, as pointed out in my paper "Giant Negentropy from the Common Dipole," Journal of New Energy, 5(1), Summer 2000, p. 11-23.    However, Mandl and Shaw fail to account for the assumed interaction of the detecting/observing unit point charge, and thus fail to account for the absorption of the incoming time-polarized wave or photon, the transduction of that excitation energy of the charge into longitudinal EM wave/photon energy, and the subsequent emission of that excitation energy in 3-space. Thus Mandl and Shaw missed the time-excitation charging  via absorption of the "coupled" time-polarized EM wave/photon, and the decay by emission of 3-space longitudinal EM wave/photon.  This interaction has been erroneously omitted in physics prior to our recognition of it.  So Mandl and Shaw do not account for photon (or wave) polarization transduction, where the "causal" time-polarized EM wave or photon comes in and is absorbed by the detecting charge or dipole, then re-emitted as the longitudinally polarized EM wave or photon in 3-space.  Recognition of these missing facts allowed at last a solution to the long-vexing problem of the source charge, often called the greatest problem in both quantum and classical electrodynamics.

Lastly, the experiment proves that all dipolar EM circuits and power systems are in fact powered by EM energy extracted directly from the vacuum.
This simple experiment thus contains what is needed to dramatically change the entire perspective of electrodynamics.  In my view, if properly done and successful, the experiment and its variants would be worthy of a Nobel Prize for the researchers doing the experiment and properly preparing the scientific results and implications.

Hope that helps.

Dear Tom,

Thanks for your reply.  From your answer I get the idea I'm sort of on the
right track.  Now I have the wonderful job of explaining this stuff to my
supervisor.  That way I might have a decent chance at getting the Uni to
make some of that wire (assuming they take me seriously).
