Chinese scientists are preparing to build a new power plant to generate power from orbiting solar panels. Led by professor Zhong Yuanchang at Chongqing University, this project to use the solar power collected in space on Earth will allow.
Named the Bishan Base, this power plant will not be operational quickly, of course, as it requires highly advanced technologies and extensive research. Small scale by 2030, and by 2050 in gigawatt scale scientists who want to establish a station that can collect power, before going on all these activities. altitude balloons to carry out microwave power transmission tests will use.
Bishan Base will be China’s first large-scale power station
China, the world’s most populous country, continues to take valuable steps towards reducing carbon dioxide emissions and becoming carbon neutral. The country with a population of 1,398 billion, which announced that it increased the amount of electricity it produces from solar power by 23% in the past weeks, to get more power from the sun also introduced its own space technologies.
This new power station, which will be located in Singapore’s Bishan district, will use orbiting solar panels, power from the Sun in a wireless state will be able to collect. Bishan Base, one-on-one China’s first large-scale power station will also feature. One of the biggest features of this base is that it can gather strength even in strong weather conditions, regardless of day and night.
Before the facility is operational, scientists must test at low altitudes using ultra-high-voltage power transfer organs. According to the statement, after the successful tests at low altitudes, increasing this altitude to two kilometers expected. For now, scientists who can perform tests via balloons at an altitude of only 300 meters, By 2050, we will increase the capacity of this station to gigawatts. wants to remove.
