Operations Report – December 8th

Crew 200 Operations Report 08-Dec-2018

SOL: 7

Name of person filing report: Antoine Bocquier

Non-nominal systems: generator autostart, generator start, solar panels power generation or conversion
Notes on non-nominal systems:
1) During the day the solar panels almost generated no power (<1kW for 2, 0kW for the 3rd) although it was a very sunny day. This led to a drop of SOC to 66% when we came back from town (at 17:20).
2) At 17:20, we started the generator which worked on the generator side, however after pushing the button to connect the generator to the network, the system shuts down after a few minutes (it was in under frequency). We tried several times and it did the same. Shannon came to help and after repeating the operation several times, it finished to work.

Generator (hours run): From 4:00 pm last night to 7:45 am. On tonight at 6:15 pm.
