NUTS - NTNU Test Satellite, a Norwegian CubeSat Project


The Electrical Power System (EPS) main goals is to charge the batteries of the satellite with energy harvested from the solar cells and to provide four voltage regulated buses to the backplane, which is the power distribution unit of the satellite.

The EPS is considered an essential part of the satellite, seeing as a loss of power would (obviously) mean an end to the mission.
