On orbit the satellite will be powered by solar panels that are placed on the side panels of the satellite. For the success of the mission energy collection must be as efficient and as reliable as possible

The Electrical Power System harvests, stores and distributes energy.

Solar panels

For harvesting energy the satellite has 6 side panels, each of which have 2 solar cells. Each panel produces 2.4 W in normal conditions, but due to the cubical shape of the satellite the power will be between 2.4 - 3.6 W.
