1 Design Team 5: Jay Martinson Brian Bernens Tyler Gordon Dan Krohnemann

2  Throughout the world, there are many developing countries that do not have the luxury of possessing telecommunication stations for cell phone use.  GE Corporation assigned engineering students to solve this problem for these communities and nations, by creating a No Grid Telecom Base Station  Team Five created a station that uses sustainable energy sources and optimizes green power for infrastructures without connections AC utility grid.

3  Power Telecom station with sustainable energy.  Solar Power  Create constant 1.2-kW load, with additional load created to power the hut equipment  Integrate suitable “Hybrid” application to obtain minimum operating costs

4  707,400 people  295 sq. kilometers  Economy ◦ Trading ◦ Export ◦ Tourism  Terrain ◦ Island ◦ Flat

5  In Mombasa, Kenya, there is already a large amount of cellular towers.  In this region, the GE Telecom Station will compete with local cellular companies, but will offer a station that runs off sustainable energy instead of utility grid power.  This cost efficient system will be able to use green technology to lower the maintenance cost of the station, making the cellular market more competitive.

6  Converts solar radiation into DC power via photovoltaic modules  Typical solar panel: 14 Watt / Square Foot  Typical System: 1,300 kWh / every kilowatt installed
