- Tecnico Solar Boat 2016 - 2018
TSB is a team of 25 students that develop a 48V 10kW peak power solar boat to compete in various races across Europe. Leading the Electrical Systems area (7 persons), I had to manage the team and dimension the electrical system - complete with a battery, battery management system, photovoltaics and electric motor. My main responsibility in the electrical systems area was the propulsion of the vessel (ie: dimensioning the powertrain) but as a leader my role covered making informed decisions, with the other leaders (4), on the overall project - stakeholders (sponsors), financials, deadlines (competitions), recruiting, marketing, etc.
