This project created a system level design plan of the power subsystem of the PANSAT Nanosatellite. Additionally, the project resulted in design and prototype of battery charging circuit which efficiently converts power from multiple solar panels with varying illuminations to DC current to the satellite batteries and loads. The battery charging circuit, which is based on a SEPIC DC-DC converter, was modeled in PSpice and tested in hardware at scaled-down power levels.
