Electrical Power Subsystem (EPS) manages the power of satellites. Satellites have solar panels to generate electricity, and battery to store the energy. EPS should design the circuit to control and distribute power.
Electrical Power Subsystem
Depth of discharge (DOD) is the ratio of power discharged to the capacity of the battery. Battery life depends on DOD, thus it is required to sizing battery considering mission lifetime.
Deployment switch detects the separation of satellites from rockets. Satellites are powered by this deployment switch when cold launch.
RBF Pin is the abbreviation of Remove Before Flight Pin, which turns on the power of the satellites by pulling out.
Shunt is a circuit that disposes the extra energy generated by satellites.
Solar Panel is the device that convert solar energy to electricity using photovoltaric cells. Solar panel supplies the power to the battery and components on satellites.
