The endurance of "Cygnus" solar UAV exceeded one day and night

the endurance of "Cygnus" solar UAV exceeded one day and night

in the early morning, a solar UAV crossed the night sky and landed smoothly on the runway of a base in Beijing. The digital freeze frame of the timer is 26 hours, 6 minutes and 57 seconds to achieve the flight target of breaking one day and night during the scheduled sudden experiment

recently, this series of products of Beijing Changyuan technology has the Cygnus solar UAV developed by easy to use Co., Ltd., setting a new record for domestic solar UAVs to be left blank, which is about 6.5 hours longer than the 19 hours and 34 minutes of domestic solar UAVs flying out in August

it is learned that the duration and intensity of sunshine in Beijing in late October have been significantly lower than that in summer, and the energy that can be obtained from sunshine has been greatly reduced accordingly. Cygnus can make a breakthrough under adverse conditions because its aerodynamic design, photovoltaic energy storage system and flight control strategy can control the flight energy consumption at a low level, so as to improve the endurance of UAV

the core team of Changyuan is composed of experts in the fields of aerodynamics, flight control, communication measurement and control, photovoltaic plastic storage granulator, which is also a major energy consumer in China. In 2014, the research and development of solar UAV was started, and in 2016, the theoretical verification flight of prototype was carried out, including the airframe structure and photovoltaic energy system, as well as the ultra-thin packaging technology, airframe composite technology of related high-efficiency flexible solar cells A lot of basic research and development work has been done in the fields of efficient energy storage technology and energy management.
