Functional requirements for Universal Power Supply:
Take multiple energy inputs:
Photovoltaics, wind turbines,
Store energy in batteries of any chemistry.
Use the smallest amount of energy conversion stages possible.
Provide vide variety of output voltages ( 1.8, 3.3, 5, 12, 24, 36, 48, etc )
Bidirectional Connection between multiple Universal Power Supplies to form Distributed Direct Current Grid.
Universal Power Supply will use TI C2000 MCU family.
In the begining power stages will work with Launchpads and TI ControlSticks.
Software will be developed in VisSim with Digital Power Designer Suite.
Lithium Ion Battery will be used.
Universal Power Supply Components:
Texas Instruments Solar Explorer Kit [R5]
Great Development Tool!
