ESTCube-1 telemetry

EC-1 is now in more or less power-neutral state. Telemetry during daytime shows quite small MPPT currents in EPS housekeeping data. I think, their sum is below 100 mA (@4 V) and satellite is not charging batteries anymore – even when sleeping one day, the battery voltage level stays the same.


There was plan to update EPS firmware once more, to set battery lower limit level even lower – the danger of loosing the capacity of batteries is not an issue anymore.
