25 Oct Apogee struggling towards Tennant Creek
We won’t make it tonight, but hope to roll in tomorrow morning. The array has only been putting out about 550 watts, so we’ve been cruising at 50 km/h. It’s bad news, but we have a plan to try and fix our issues.
Blowing up a bunch of the tracker circuitry at the race track certainly didn’t help. We’re now running in open loop control, and that’s not exactly good. We have some other hardware in the back of the truck that may help us get some of the data back, but it’s not necessarily going to work.
