High-Frequency, Half-Wavelength Power Transmission Scheme
The half-wavelength power transmission scheme has some unique advantages and disadvantages for power transmission. This paper presents a new concept to take advantage of the scheme while overcoming its main limitation. The concept involves a power generation transmission unit. This unit generates and transmits power at a specific high frequency so that the distance between the generator and the receiving end is equal to a half-wavelength of the voltage/current of the system. As a result, a far-away generator becomes electrically located at the receiving end as if there is no transmission line separating the sending and receiving ends. The proposed concept represents an innovative and promising scheme to transmit a large amount of power over long distances.
