The intent of this project with Powerco was to identify the cause of premature battery failure and suggest improvements to the Remote Area Power System (RAPS), which is managed by Powerco subsidiary Basepower. An evaluation matrix was used to analyse the most beneficial solution that can be implemented in the RAPS unit.
The issues that have caused the early failure for the RAPS have been determined and improvements to the system are suggested. These have been provided to the Powerco Research and Development team for consideration.
