Abstract

In the 21st century, the development of technologies to produce carbon free power sources remains paramount. In this paper, we study an optimal power transmission strategy from a space-based satellite generation station to Earth using scalar diffraction theory. The resulting model is then solved via a spectral method that guarantees a compactly supposed profile from the transmitting antenna. Finally, the problem is then solved via a more general pseudo-spectral method using control theory.
