Not to be bullish but what has plasma cosmology lead to the invention of. . . .
"Mainstream" science has given us all kinds of fun little gizmo's like fiber optics, transistors, pet scans, and an entire plethora of other tech. . . If we are basing our argument on which model has lead to more engineering advances then I'm afraid "standard" physics is far beyond the contributions of plasma cosmology. . .

This electric current you are wondering about is coming directly from the sun as explained in this article here. science.nasa.gov...

Personally I am fond of the theory of relativity and I see no reason to throw all of it out yet. The problems I see that are being discussed here have to do with the explanations of warped time-space and point particles. The more I learn about the wave structure of matter the more fault I see in particle physics. It appears your presentation states that there are no such things as particles, just waves. I agree with you but I also think this will be a hard sell to particle physicists.
Is it true that an electric current generates a magnetic field and inversely a magnetic field is present around an electric current? Or, more to the point, the two are one of the same? In other words you cannot have one without the other. If this is true than the nature of the electric Sun theory seems to be a no brainer. The Sun creates a magnetic field therefore, there must be an electric current creating this field. The question is where is the source of this electricity. This same phenomena is present within the Earth, since the Earth has a magnetic field where is the electric current?

Alfven was an electrical engineer before he became a cosmologist.
In fact, he's the one that formulated MHD theory.
His work on plasma theory is used constantly by engineers working with plasma. Even the scientists attempting to build the TOKAMAK fusion reactor rely on work done by Alfven.
