The production of our 6th solar car S10, which we have been working on since 2018, has been successfully completed. With our new car, we became the “Only Turkish Team” participating in Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2019 held in Australia between 13-20 October.
The aerodynamic design of our new car was completely designed by our team. The dimensions of our new car, the design of which was made in an asymmetric catamaran type, were recalculated and reduced by carrying out intensive studies and calculations to be suitable for race formats and efficient use of the panel surface area. The body of the vehicle consists of polymer composite structures including bearing components, the driver’s console and other in-car mechanisms.
The MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking), which determines the efficiency of the energy from the sun, and the BMS (Battery Management System) that we use in monitoring the energy and in the safety of the car, were also designed and produced by our team. As a solar panel technology, we used semi-flexible panels with a monocrystalline structure with 22.8% efficiency. In general, all systems except the battery and panel parts of our car are designed and manufactured by our team.
