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.
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.
