Student Team | University of Strathclyde
We are PowerHab! A team of fourth- and fifth-year engineering students from the University of Strathclyde selected to participate in the IGLUNA 2020 campaign with the Swiss Space Center and ESA. Our objective is to develop a system capable of powering a lunar habitat whilst maintaining resiliency in the harsh lunar environment.

This article highlights the design and manufacturing of the PowerHab student teams Lithium-Ion battery management system prototype as well as an explanation of its operation.
In space, the demand for electrical power is not only a requirement for technology, it is a necessity for survival. Without technologies to maintain environmental conditions mimicking those at the Earth’s surface, humans could not survive in space.
Our power system is designed to provide viable energy generation, storage and distribution to a lunar habitat and incorporate multiple subsystems to allow for redundancy should one subsystem fail.
