Introduction to Wireless Power Transmission for Solar Power Satellites:
Due to growing need for energy sources we need to look for power generation sources. The fossil fuels are getting extinct so there is need for search of renewable sources for power generation. In this Wireless Power Transmission for Solar Power Satellites Seminar paper we will look into solar power sources for power generation and transmitting them in wireless pattern.
Space satellites need power and by using this technology we can transmit power wirelessly in the form of microwaves.
Wireless power transmission pattern:
We use solar panels which consist of photo voltaic cells which trap the power and we transmit the stored energy in the form of microwaves. Previously there is no technology to convert microwaves to electricity but in the present days due to advancements it is possible. To convert the power in to microwaves we need to use a magnetron and it gets transmitted to the free space.
To receive the micro wave power we need a receiver which is called rectenna which consists of two dipoles which absorbs the transmitted power and the power received in this pattern has an output efficiency of 85 percent.
By using this technology we can meet the energy requirements and the solar technology does not cause pollution. By using wireless power transmission we can transmit power to the space satellites and other devices by using microwave receivers. By using this technology we can transmit power to the required sources without the need of wires.
At present the wireless power transmission technology is still in a developing stage and will come into usage in the future.
