AbstractThe proposed satellite power system for importing nearly continuous solar-electric power from synchronous orbit, is to consist of a fleet of orbiting solar collector spacecraft, each of approximately 100 km² area. The 6.25 GWe power output is converted to 2.45 GHz microwaves and beamed to earth based rectenna collectors for conversion to high voltage ac or dc power, to feed into the electric utility transmission grid.
