Describe the performance of your system


· Brief description of the project & objectives (problem definition)
· Brief description of the design requirements
· A brief description of the environment (renewable energy sources that are available in Sparkyville)
· Brief description of the structure/content of this document (i.e. what will be discussed in the document, and
in what order)

· Brief description of power generation from the renewable energy sources you are using (i.e. how does it work
to produce power; what energy conversions take place)
· Calculations and/or measurements of the power available from each source you are using
· Brief description of existing technology for power generation (solar collectors, turbines, etc.) that inspired
your design and how aspects of those designs appeared in your design (be sure to talk about why you chose
to use those aspects). This could also include other research that you did that helped you make your design
decisions. Cite these sources appropriately.

Design Implementation
· Include a description and picture(s) (photos) of your final system prototype.
· Final Budget & materials (should be included as a Table)
· Describe the testing procedures you used (when preparing for the final demonstration) to ensure your
design’s success (data from these tests can be included as a part of Appendix 2…be sure to direct reader to
appendix in text). This is a chance to show what your system could do under ideal conditions (especially if
you had not ideal conditions for the final demonstration)
· Describe the performance of your system, including final test results from final demonstration
o Plot of Power produced over time
o Report values that describe your system’s performance (i.e. maximum voltage, maximum power,
average power, and standard deviation of power)
o Comparison of predicted power to actual power produced (% difference)
· Include the calculated efficiency of your system
