Space Solar Energy Systems of Gyroscopic and Cyclic Functioning with Elemental Compatibility of Components and a New Algorithm for Converting Solar Radiation Energy.
Design developments of an efficiently original method for converting solar radiation by gyroscopic and cyclic space energy systems with a new thermal conversion algorithm, which were developed before, will not leave designers and developers without attention to the concept of the future development of space energy. Their implementation will lead to a partial replacement of non-renewable natural earth energy resources.
A feature of the created project of a gyroscopic solar power satellite with a new thermal conversion system (TCS) and a superconducting generator is a fundamentally different approach to converting the energy of the full spectrum of solar radiation into mechanical and electrical in the required ratios than had previously been developed in the field of space energy. The construction of the power plant provides for the creation and deployment of high-tech production with controlled gravity. The design makes it possible not to use steam and gas turbine installations, a guidance system, as well as a radiator refrigerator, the mass of which would be about half of its total mass. Their role is played by heat-converting modules moving in a circular tunnel cavity "heat trap", which has a transparent surface with a low-emission coating. The use of high-temperature superconductors in GSPS, as well as heat-resistant and lightweight structural materials made of carbon-containing composites, significantly improves its energy and weight and dimensions. This can be inexpensive when it is created with relatively cheap components compared to photoconverting SPS. The principle of operation of the power plant realizes the possibility of basing similar converters on celestial objects.
