Maglev Power System

 

Electrical power systems typically experience large swings in power demand, with relatively low usage during the night and high usage in the daytime.  Even during the daytime period, power demand varies widely, with major peaks during the morning and late afternoon.

 

The Maglev Power System, or MAPS, is designed to store large amounts of energy from solar or wind sources and return this power to the smart grid during those periods when wind or solar are in low output modes.

 

To learn more about our solutions in superconducting maglev energy storage as an adjunct to solar and wind generation systems.

Powell and Danby's Grand Idea: 50 Years of Maglev History

 

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 | Presented by Jesse Powell | 49:21

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first published paper on magnetic levitation (Maglev) vehicles—authored by now-retired Brookhaven Lab researchers James Powell and Gordon Danby—James Powell's son Jesse presents this lecture on maglev's past, present, and potential for the future.

Silent Earth book

 

The pathway described in Silent Earth bypasses the constraints on non-fossil technical solutions and describes three non-fossil energy technologies that can greatly reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels and help to avoid environmental catastrophe. They are technically practical, economically attractive, environmentally desirable and can be quickly developed and implemented.

 

Silent Earth describes a feasible, realistic plan to:

 

•  Use Maglev to launch solar electric generators to geosynchronous orbit to beam very low-cost 24/7 electric power down to world-wide receivers on Earth.

 

•  Use the very cheap electricity from space solar to make synthetic gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel from air and water to distribute through the exist fossil fuel distribution system.

 

•  Create Superconducting Maglev transport networks that complement existing highways and railways to provide rapid, low cost movement of freight, commuters, and passengers.

 

 

Will be available at Amazon.com

 

These 3 technology applications should be tested and demonstrated as soon as possible. The global urgency has arrived and there should not be further delay.  The build-out of the 3 applications at large scale can be implemented by governments, private investors, or international cooperative institutions such as the World Bank or the United Nations or a new monetary fund to rapidly create the new manufacturing, transport services and synthetic fuel production and distribution to keep pace with World economic growth and provide good paying jobs for people currently employed in the fossil fuel industry.
