The Space solar panels
Space solar panels is a modern concern which will utilize the space based solar power system transmitting wireless ENERGY. That energy will be received on to receiver down to Earth.
powers system has been the major focus of alternative energy industry and Environmental experts of the world due to it’s zero or minimum carbon footprints and better energy efficiency eliminating the noise pollution.
The ordinary solar panel system
We produce solar energy using conventional solar panel system (PV panels), we will produce solar power using spherical sun power generator in the future which is another futuristic technology with amazing efficiency and accuracy utilizing a dual-axis tracking system, Now we are aiming at the vastness of space to collect solar power from the sun in the space and transmit Wirelessly to the EARTH.
Space solar panels
Japanese Space Agency (JAXA) is researching and working to develop an effective space based solar power and wireless energy transfer.
Space Based solar power systems (SSPS) is aiming to transmit solar power driven electricity to the Earth by 2030 by using large square space solar panels.
Solar panels i are a tough task to achieve but it is not impossible to transmit wireless electricity.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI) successfully experimented a ground demonstration test of wireless transmission of electricity which will be the base for solar power production from the space utilizing solar panels in the space or an entire array of the panels.
Space based solar power-Wireless transmission of electricity demonstration
According to the alternative energy news
In the test, 10 kilowatts of electricity was successfully transmitted via a microwave unit, great news for space solar panels.
Power reception was confirmed at a receiver located 500 meters away. LED lights on the receiver confirmed the transmission
This marks a new milestone in transmission distance and power load (enough to power a set of conventional kitchen appliances).
a test also confirmed the success of the advanced control system technology that is used to direct the microwave beam so that it stays on target.”
Working of space solar panels
- Solar system in the space will have measurements of more than 2 miles along each side.
- The Spaced based Solar power will be collected in the panels just like any ordinary solar panel system.
- But the efficiency will be higher due to an absence of dust and any medium.
- space solar panels will generate approximately as much 10 times more than ordinary solar panel system on Earth due to an absence of resistance and zero weather effects.
- They will rotate with respect to Earth.
- The space solar panels will face the Earth.
- Each side of solar panels will use microwaves to beam the energy down to EARTH.
- There will be a receiver which will receive the space based solar power-driven electricity.
- A huge solar battery will revolve (36,000 above Earth) around the Earth in the future.
JAXA is estimating that space solar panels will generate around the same amount of energy as one “Nuclear Reactor” but it will face challenges.
Space based Solar power is an old idea, in 1980s United States thought that they could generate solar power from the space, but they switched to ordinary solar panel system due to technological and economic problems.
According to Mr. Goto “, one of the major challenges in the modern human race is to transmit solar power from SPACE to EARTH”
Future of space based solar power
Scientists are working on a receiver which will receive the space based solar power.
It will be 1 mile in diameter and will float on the sea, aiming to assemble it with the grid.
Robots will take care of the maintained and the care of space solar panels, JAXA will launch a robot astronaut in the space to work on their solar panel system.
Each craft will have an effective lifespan of 40 years, that is the expectation of scientists.
Space solar panels are the future of renewable energy and technology.
Space based Solar power is an essential part of creating a better and green future which will thrive on renewable-based energy systems and devices.
While the scientists of JAXA are working on the futuristic space solar panels.
It is our duty to support the cause and create an awareness of Space Based solar power.
latest and efficient technologies regarding solar panel system are our future.
