Progress Update

In the last two weeks, I've been responsible for thinking about possible designs for the Solar Panel array. At the first moment I did a more simple design to attached above the trail:




Then with help of Gabriel Loebens of ISE team, I came up with another design more aesthetics and modern, as you can see in the next pictures:

Research Progress

For now, it's been 3 weeks since the beginning of my work here at the Spartan Superway, past week we just had a collective break, and most of the Brazilians went on a trip to Las Vegas, we spent 5 incredible days there, went to many parties, and meet with old friends.




 

As a part of the Solar Team, we had some progress after a lot of research  in the first two weeks, more precisely, we worked on some possible designs to the panels array, and also we are developing and updating our study about the Power Consumption estimation. We still have to work deeply on both, but we are happy with the actual results.
