PROJECT TITLE: Efficient Power Management Systems for Autonomous Space Entities — EPMSASE

Coordinator: University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest (www.upb.ro) - Research Center for Spatial Information

Partners: Electrical Engineering Research and Design Institute (ICPE SA, www.icpe.ro)

Period: 29 November 2013 - 28 November 2015

Project director: Associate Professor Adriana Florescu

Project team:

Description: This research project is focused on the PMSs (Power Management Systems) that use distributed power architecture and covers specific energy conversion techniques from alternative sources (Photovoltaic Panels, Fuel Cells, etc.), energy storage elements (batteries, super-capacitors, transformers), power-shedding algorithms as well as high-performance DC-DC conversion solutions.
