The GTSR Electrical Team is tasked with the design and implementation of the various electrical subsystems required for a solar powered vehicle. From the solar cells to the battery pack to the power train, we deal in ultra high efficiency and solid reliability. We get the opportunity to work on cutting edge designs and with power electronics developed by various international firms and research organizations. Our members range in disciplines from pure CS to analog and digital design. The electrical team is subdivided into five sub-teams: Auxiliary Systems, Batteries and BMS, Drivetrain, Solar and MPPT, and Telemetry.
