Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why does DC/AC matter?  The heating loop is galvanically isolated from the supply by the use of the transformer.

Don't forget the R1 insulative effect of the still air around the conductor.  I can believe the burst vs continuous argument, even if we move to a very narrow pulse, say 0.5s, that's still only about 1MW which could be provided by the existing infrastructure.
