This is the second of two questions. Same introduction.
A civilisation on Earth has just begun expanding with a Dyson swarm, which is a Dyson sphere but made with many satellites, to prevent structural problems a sphere would have. This will generate a lot of electricity for the population.
I was reading some articles about solar flares and it got me thinking. How would a Dyson swarm react to coronal mass ejections? Solar flares, Coronal mass ejections and the like can cause havoc for electrical systems. This is because an abundance of energy is pushed onto the electrical circuits thanks to mostly magnetic induction, with a great potential to cause damage. On the other hand, could this spike in energy be caught and subsequently used, assuming any current theory or real technology?
To make sure it is well understood, the Dyson swarm is meant to make a lot of energy as efficiently as possible. That is why the best answer tells the most efficient way of adding a collection system for such surges in energy. That means the satellites are preferably as light as possible, with as little complexity as possible, with as little loss of the normal energy gathering efficiency as possible. 'Protection' can mean that you replace parts or satellites if they get damaged, if you can support this with why it is most efficient.
I'm well aware that this is a depth not suited for my short story, adding problems that aren't there for most readers, but I'm very interested in it anyway. Even if it's only mentioned in passing, I would like it to be correct.
