Project Summary Project Information

Project Readiness Package document describes project objectives and assumptions.

The objective of this project is to design and build an energy harvesting and energy storage scheme from photovoltaic devices to convert solar to electrical energy. During MSD I, the engineering tasks will be to analyze, investigate technologies, define engineering specifications, simulate designs, build prototype circuits, propose and review an optimal concept and detailed designs, and create engineering drawings. The tasks during MSD II are to build, test, evaluate and demonstrate the solar cell (photovoltaic) energy harvesting system.
