Tethered Solar Power Satellite (Tethered-SPS) consisting of a large power generation/transmission panel and a bus system which are connected by tether wires has been proposed as an innovative solar power satellite. The concept Tethered-SPS is highly robust and potentially low cost. This paper presents a new version of Tethered-SPS which is integrated by perfectly equivalent units loosely connected to each other. The new Tethered-SPS, highly flexible and expansible, has a lot of advantages over the past SPS models in attitude stability, construction, modularization, thermal characteristics, and robustness.
