One of the systems with the highest cost and the most frequent failure in small satellites is the Electrical Power System (EPS). This lecture will present new approaches to increase fault tolerance, reduce development time of EPS for small spacecraft. We will explore solar module integrated converters, battery screening process and supercapacitors as energy storage technology. We will go through architecture and application of these technologies in small satellites for Low Earth Orbit.
