Optimal Path Planning and Power Allocation for Solar-Powered UAVs
In this project the problem of optimal path planning and power allocation for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is explored. The UAVs are equipped with photovoltaic cells on top of their wings and their energy sources are solar power and rechargeable batteries. The Sun incidence angle on the photovoltaic cells, which subsequently affects energy harvesting, is determined by the attitude of the UAV and the Sun position.
