Gliding on a Magnetic Wave is Smooth, Quiet, Fast, and Efficient
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.

Advanced 2nd Generation Superconducting Maglev solutions for 21st Century surface transportation and beyond.
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.
The following link shares the interview and the talk by Jesse.
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.
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.
