Solar antenna designed by Paul W Kincaid was designed to harness radiant energy from all directions. It was designed to take up less space than a solar panel. It was designed to harness more energy than a solar panel.
There are a number of flaws in the design of solar panels that makes them very inefficient in harnessing solar energy. The very thin strips of conducting material in solar panels can of course only harness very little energy. Replace the thin strips with thin metal sheets or discs and you increase the inductance of the solar panels. A thin sheet of conducting material has a much greater inductance than very thin strips.
The thickness or gauge, of a conducting material has an inversely proportional relationship to resistance. The thinner a wire is, the greater resistance it has; this is because thinner wire has fewer electrons to carry an electric current. Solar panels are essentially made of very thin conducting material which makes them unable to efficiently carry an electric current.
A thicker wire or a metal plate will have a greater area and therefore will have less resistance and will prove to be better conductors of electricity than a solar panel’s very thin conducting material which inherently have a higher resistance.
Electric current will flow more easily through a thick wire than through a thin wire when connected to the same source.
The solar antenna has multiple elements which work together as a single antenna to harness various forms of electromagnetic energy. The individual elements are connected to a single receiver feedline that feed the harnessed power to either rechargeable batteries, power packs or super capacitors.
The solar antenna is an omnidirectional antenna, a class of antenna which can harness various forms of electromagnetic energy from all directions. That’s an important feature because:
“Electric power is everywhere present, in unlimited qualities. This new power for the driving of the world’s machinery will be derived from the energy which operates in the universe, without the need for coal, gas, oil, or any other fuel”. Nikola Tesla
The solar panel design utilizes a method Nikola Tesla used in 1901 (over a 120 years ago) to harness radiant energy.
In Nikola Tesla’s energy harnessing patent Tesla used an antenna. Nikola Tesla also powered a steel frame electric motor converted Pierce Arrow automobile using an antenna. Tesla used an antenna to power an electric car that had just one 12 volt Willard battery. Nikola Tesla successfully demonstrated that more energy can be harnessed by an antenna than by any solar panel manufactured today.
In patent US685958A – Method of utilizing radiant energy you can clearly see that Nikola Tesla used an antenna that was made of a single sheet of highly polished and insulated metal plate to harness radiant energy:
“In applying my discovery I provide a condenser, preferably of considerable electrostatic capacity, and connect one of its terminals to an insulated metal plate or other conducting body exposed to the rays or streams of radiant matter. … an insulated conducting body connected to one of the terminals of a condenser, while the other terminal of the same is made by independent means to receive or to carry away electricity. A current flows into the condenser so long as the insulated body is’ exposed to the rays, and under the conditions hereinafter specied an indefinite accumulation of electrical energy in the condenser takes place. This energy after a suitable time interval, during which the rays are allowed to act, may manifest itself in a powerful discharge, which may be utilized for the operation or control of mechanical or elecitrical devices or rendered useful in many other ways. … The insulated plate or conducting body should present as large a surface as practicable to the rays or streams of matter, I having ascertained that the amount of energy conveyed to it per unit of time is under otherwise identical conditions proportionate to the area exposed, or nearly so. Furthermore, the surface should be clean and preferably highly polished or amalgamated”
Antennas are used by ionosphere heaters in the US, Russia, China and Germany reoccupied Europe to transmit enormous amounts of energy into the atmosphere to heat up the atmosphere and cause climate change/weather modification. Ionosphere heaters use antenna arrays to fabricate climate change in a targeted area.
An antenna array is a set of multiple connected antennas which work together as a single antenna, to transmit or receive radio waves. The individual antennas are usually connected to a single receiver or transmitter by feedlines that feed the power to the elements in a specific phase relationship.
Ionosphere heaters use antennas because an antenna can either transmit energy or receive energy or both. An antenna is a transducer. A transducer converts one form of energy to another.
An antenna is an electrical device which converts electric energy into radio waves, and vice versa.
During the receive mode of operation, an antenna converts electromagnetic (EM) energy into electrical energy. The solar antenna is designed to operate only in receive mode – convert the EM energy that is all around us into electrical energy.
