Abstract:
The payload will examine the effectiveness of different power storage devices under high-altitude flight conditions. The charging and discharging characteristics of NiMH, NiCd, Li Ion and supercapacitors regenerative power system will be studied. In addition, a control set of fully charged devices will be flown and the state of charge of these devices will be examined during post-flight analysis.
