New generation thermodynamic autonomously managed space solar power plant

  • Yu. M. Mar’yinskykh


A comparative analysis of promising projects of solar radiation transformation by photovoltaic and thermodynamic devices into electric power at space solar power plants is given, the problems in implementation of these projects are revealed. A solution to the problems by means of the alternative project of concentrated solar radiation conversion to electricity by means of the autonomously managed space power plant is suggested. The effectiveness of the produced electric power is provided by the constructive solution with the use of carbon and lightweight, heat-resistant, durable materials, superconducting elements on its basis.
