Welcome to the Lafayette Photovoltaic Research and Development System!
LPRDS is a multi-year, multi-team, senior Electrical and Computer Engineering project that consists of the design, implementation, and testing of a 2kW solar energy system. This website contains all documentation associated with the LPRDS project during the Spring semester of 2011. The 2011 team spent the semester designing a standalone cell management system, capable of balancing a pack of 4 Lithium Ion cells, and so much more! Browse the site to learn more about our results.
