Space Technological System with Remote Energy Supply Via a Wireless Laser Channel
- 8 Downloads
The remote energy supply of a technological module via a wireless laser channel is demonstrated to be the most promising method for achieving an acceptable level of microgravity (~10–7g) aboard a spacecraft (SC) to perform experiments in the fields of the physics of liquids and space material science. The possible configuration of such a SC and wireless electrical-energy-transfer system are discussed. The requirements to the given system, the characteristics of its components, and the possibility of their implementation at the current level of technology are analyzed. The space experiment whereby the wireless electrical-energy-transfer technology is tried out using the Russian segment of the International Space Station is described.
