We spent the initial phase of MSD II ensuring we had a solid plan for the upcoming semester. Many of the tasks included verifying scheduling, lead times, and creating test plans. At the same time preliminary subsystem testing was started and more sponsors were searched for, one of which donated an old electric golf cart. A lot of labor time was also used to remove the old DC motor from the cart to serve as our unit-under-test.

Test Plan Summary

High Level Test Plan

High Level Test Plan


The general approach for our test plans is a subsystem-up approach. Some of the major systems, such as the load generator, require the safety and sensing subsystems to already be in place. Diagnostic testing is done behind the scenes and is not considered part of the commissioning testing. The detailed test plans for the major engineering requirements can be found at the following link: note that some are "specified" and won't need to be tested.

Budget/Ordering Status

All materials have been ordered, unless they are delayed intentionally. We're holding off on some less essential pieces of the frame -- the plexiglass shielding, and aluminum shelving until we secure an additional funding source. The up to date budget summary is below, and the full bill of materials is available for reference as needed.
