Structure   Design  ยป  Power System
This is the design for power generation, power storage, and electrical wiring. Current focus is on developing a solar/battery system based on single unit power requirements (as opposed to communal power systems such as wave power, or OTEC). Future iterations will update the system as technology evolves.

Envelope

For low latitudes, the total watt capacity of solar modules should be 3 times the total energy consumption (in A-hrs/day). For higher latitudes, 4 times energy needs. The table below estimates usage for common electrical devices that might be used on an Xmaran.

Based on these numbers, the minimum PV module requirement is 1200-1500W.
