Power System and Harness
The principle of the designed electrical power subsystem (EPS) is:
Direct Energy Transfer (DET) with unregulated bus. This means the battery operates in parallel to the solar array and the bus voltage can vary
This system is extremely efficient and has the following advantages:
The solar array consists of 3 solar panels (2 deployable, 1 body-mounted) with a available power of > 120 W (EOL).
The selected battery consists of 8 cells and has a capacity of 240 Wh (type Ni-H2-battery).
