One of the most critical subsystems of a small satellite is the Electrical Power System EPS. Power generated on board is necessary for the satellite to operate correctly during its lifetime.
The EPS consists mainly of solar cells, batteries, voltage converters and protection circuits. The EPS is responsible of providing stable power to the rest of the satellite subsystems and payloads.
This paper discusses the design and implementation of the power conditioning module PDM for the coming generation of small satellites for the Algerian Space Agency ASAL. The design must provide a reliable protection for the subsystems from the over-current associated with a device failure.
