70's or 80's movie about a scientist's (silent?) experiment in the desert???

A possible title for this one could be: "The Silent Experiment" but I'm not sure and want to find out!

Plot (as far as i remember):
A scientist works on some experiment in the desert. I think he's trying to create renewable energy (from sound I think). A (oil?) company tries to spoil his intentions, and he has to collaborate with a woman to fight the company and solve the experiment. In many ways the movie reminds me of the much newer blockbuster "Chain Reaction" with Morgan Freeman. But this old one was far ahead with its plot I think.

Hope anyone nails the name :-) Tnx.

Could this have been the "Philadelphia Experiment"?
Tnx for the suggestion, VHS_Lives. I also thought about that one, but listening to the theme song I realize this is not the one...
