Jamal S. Shrair, of the Budapest University of Technology says, "The current theory of the Sun and the stellar should have been discarded a long time ago. A good and well-established theory should not only be free of contradictions, but also be able to explain any new observations without additional ad hoc notions."
The external energy supply to the Sun was obvious even before space probes (Voyagers and IBEX) detected it. The sunspot cycle, the surface temperature, the reverse temperature gradient and the existence of the corona in itself, are some of the outstanding evidence that point to the external energy supply that our star receives.
The Sun, like all stars, is not a self-sufficient entity, but it is externally powered by inducing the current from high energy particles (cosmic rays). Yes, its radiated energy is the result of nuclear fusion - not thermonuclear fusion – and the process is generated in the Sun as a result of interactions between the its layers and the external energy source which is transported by complex galactic magnetic fields. It is important to be aware that the Sun converts energy to mass, not the other way around.
Conventional physicists have assumed that the Sun is spherically symmetric and neutral object. Based on real solar physics, the Sun is an overall positively charged celestial object. The acceleration of the solar wind cannot be explained by the principles of the current theory. The other dilemma is that, based on gas laws, the Sun's atmosphere should only extend a few thousand kilometres, whereas it reaches a vast distance and heats up to more than a million degrees. The differential rotations are also obvious defects under the current model, as is the correlation of solar neutrino rate with surface activity.
At Solar Ancestor we look at the Heliosphere as a complete unit, of which planet Earth is one component. The physical mechanism of the Heliosphere is completely governed by magnetic fields interactions. The high energy cosmic particles that power the Sun are modulated by the Heliospheric Current Sheet (HCS) and the Solar Polar Fields (SPF). The increasing phase of the external energy supply is during solar minimum, while the decreasing one is during solar maximum.
