PSAT – APRS transponder vs. power budget

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017 by

Currently, the satellite is not sufficiently illuminated which leads to a poor energy budget.
The NiCd batteries are charged by 3 large 8.4V solar panels on the +Z, -Z and +X side.
(there are also three 3.2V solar panels on the +Y, -Y and -X side).

The temperature of the panels is equivalent to the illumination.
A RESET occurs when the battery voltage falls below a critical value. The last reset was on 18 Feb.
The APRS transponder is OFF by default and must be switched on after each reset.
