3D Renderings of Deployable Solar Panels

Here are 3 dimensional renders of the front (top) and back (bottom) sides of a single deployable solar panel that will be attached to the CubeSat. This is one of the four solar panels that will be on the satellite. It features a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) mounted with 8 solar cells that are joined in a series configuration, and will be connected to the electrical power system module. Special consideration has been made to manage the panel temperature; hence the exposed copper zones shown on the back of the solar panel. Once deployed, the solar cells will be aimed in a sun-pointing mode to maximize power production in order to supply power to all the other subsystems in the satellite.
