POWER RAISING AND DISTRIBUTION

OVERVIEW

 

The power system raises power from five body mounted solar panels on the side of the spacecraft, which are all nadir facing. Energy will be stored in a 10,000 mAh battery.

 

The power system is designed to provide both 5 V and 3.3 V to the other subsystems. The dual voltage requirement is due to the camera payload requiring 5 V while the majority of the other electronics require a 3.3 V bus.

Initial testing and breadboarding of the power subsystem

The UoS3 project is undertaken with the support of the Education Office of the European Space Agency, under the educational Fly your Satellite! Programme; an ESA educational programme complementing academic education.
