Solar Battery

The solar battery is built based on a standard light sensor. It generates energy continuously without any action by the user. When the solar battery is targeting the sun, the reserve of PSS virtual energy begins to replenish.

Users can, at their own discretion, install from 1 to 8 battery units on the same face as the solar battery unit. Depending on number of units, the amount of energy produced by the solar battery will change.

The power element is a thin plate whose size and weight will be refined later. It is mounted onto the surface with the help of an adhesive layer. The batteries themselves will be given to teams right before the competition. The approximate size of the solar cell is 36×100 mm.

Keep in mind that partial overlapping of the solar cells by the cable network or construction elements will reduce the efficiency of the solar battery.
