P13271 AMSAT Fox-2 MPPT Engineering Prototype Final Test Report

A single document was created to consolidate the AMSAT Fox-2 Maximum Power Point Tracker engineering prototype unit test results. These results show that the delivered MPPT to AMSAT has met it's technical specifications set forth during the design phase (MSDI)

User or Operator Instructions/Manual

Since this project is a prototype maximum power point tracker not aimed for general consumer purchase, it is assumed that an engineer with extensive background in electrical engineering principles uses the circuit. Therefore, the documentation provided elsewhere is more than comprehensive enough for proper use of the project hardware and software.
