Preliminary Detailed Design

Table of Contents

This phase requires an overall basic design of the entire project. Here all the subsystems detailed more than the previous phase and they are all combined for the entire system. All the intricacies and final design will be completed in the next phase but mostly done in this one.

Test Plans

Subsystem

  1. Magnets: Stabilization (lateral, axial) of the magnets and the entire system, preventing the system from falling apart. This will also include a mock build.
  2. Propeller: Flow simulation in SolidWorks will allow us to understand how the water or air will flow through the propeller and in what areas it will be disrupted or experience turbulence.
  3. Motor: Use an encoder to measure RPM; hook up and see if it the motor spins.
  4. Solenoids: Helmholtz coils will show if power runs through the solenoid.
  5. Enclosure: A leakage test will show if the propeller is enclosed properly & see if the motor fits.
  6. Coding: Check values, troubleshoot, and emulate the program to see if any errors occur or if the code runs.
  7. Temperature: Use thermo-couples to see get temperature values.
  8. Solenoid Controller: Verifying proper voltage output via multimeter, based on different inputs.
  9. Power Supply: Verifying the proper voltage is being output.
