Congrats to our capstone team S21-10 Nathaniel Glikman, Alexander Laemmle, Nicholas Meegan, Bhargav Singaraju, and Sukhjit Singh who won the IEEE PES best poster award in the IEEE PES Day Global 2021 (https://site.ieee.org/pes-day/) with their project “Improvements to the Viability of Solar Panels in the Field”. Watch their presentation here: https://www.facebook.com/pesday/videos/1206442346478231 .
This project aims to increase the amount of sunlight received by a solar panel in the field each day by introducing a method to track the sun throughout the course of the day which increases the power absorbed and efficiency.
The team advisers are Dr. Michael Caggiano and Cameron Greene from L3Harris. The team will also participate in L3Harris competition on 5/6/21.
