Abstract

The Arctic Power System (APS) is a remote power conditioner that will receive unregulated power from a combination of wind, solar, and hydrogen energy sources and regulate the power to a fixed 20W output. This output will be used to power multispectral cameras for one year without external support in the Arctic Circle. Utilizing a combination of Texas Instruments, Delfino Microcontroller Unit, Super Capacitor Storage and Several Buck-Boost Architectures the conditioning will provide two outputs for a 5V and 12V output. Currently, the project is being examined by the U.S. Coast Guard for implementation in defense functions. The five student, two faculty member team will have completed subsystem test for demonstration at the conclusion of the semester.
