The power supply is ensured by two separate energy circuits. Due to the higher power consumption of the measuring and control computer, a 6-cell battery with 22.2V is now used. With a capacity of 5,200mAh, the vehicle can be operated in battery mode with a full load for more than one hour.
The measuring technology and the computer can be supplied by an external power supply unit in a voltage range of 6-24V. For this purpose, the student teams receive a corresponding power supply unit when the vehicle is handed over. The engine and cruise control are powered by a 2-cell battery with 7.4V.
