Solar-based Satellite Power System: An Overview

Divyanshi Srivastava, S.K. Srivastava


Abstract: In this paper, describes about advancement in solar-based power system in satellite. A thrust which provides a back force to satellites that move in upward direction and get satellites help to generate power in space. This power transmits to the earth via wireless power transmission and such type of satellite called space based solar power satellite. In recent time, electrical propulsion system has used mostly in place of chemical propulsion system for satellite. Solar energy collected from the space and converts into DC then transmit power from the space to earth wireless and then send to electric grid system. Solar energy is also used by the thruster elements in DC.

Keywords: WPT (wireless power transmission), SBSP, propellant, propulsion
