Photo of flight hardware: power supply
Below is a photo of the flight hardware, in form of the P10U power supply produced by Gomspace, and currently being tested by Euroluna.
The technical carachteristics can be found on the Gomspace home page.
In the current testing, especially the battery performance, has been verified, with a controlled discharge through a resistor, and then a recharge of each battery seperately.
Batteries have a nominel capacity, but is always wise to measure the actual performance under similar loads as those expected in operation.
We have then included the measured data in a spreadsheet, to find the internal resistance and the overall performance.
The next tests will include the over all system, rather than each battery seperately.
