Wireless Power Transmission via Solar Power Satellite

Wireless Power Transmission via Solar Power Satellite Full Seminar Report


The new millennium has introduced increased pressure for finding new renewable energy sources. The exponential increase in population has led to global crises such as global warming, environmental pollution and change, and the rapid decrease of fossil reservoirs. Also, the demand for electric power increases at a much higher pace than other energy demands as the world is industrialized and computerized. Under these circumstances, research has been carried out to look into the possibility of building a power station in space to transmit electricity to Earth by way of radio waves-the Solar Power Satellites. Solar Power Satellites (SPS) convert solar energy in to micro waves and send that microwaves in to a beam to a receiving antenna on the Earth for conversion to ordinary electricity. SPS is a clean, large-scale, stable electric power source. One of the key technologies needed to enable the future feasibility of SPS is that of Microwave Wireless Power Transmission.WPT is based on the energy transfer capacity of microwave beam i.e.; energy can be transmitted by a well-focused microwave beam. 
The seminar report covers how the “SPS via WPT" can come into action in the future and its related research on how it can be improved and can be used practically on a large scale. The content covers its historical and theoretical background. Its recent technologies and researches from SPS and WPT-antennas and receivers. And then it covers the transmitter and receiver issues and answers for the space use. It also about its efficiency and its improvement measures. It also contains environmental issues and a solution to those issues.
