- ... The solar array layout is one of the critical factors affecting the output performance of a solar array on a stratospheric airship. Optimizing the layout to improve output energy per day is very important for a long endurance vehicle, but the research about this subject is rare. This paper outlines a numerical method based on a rotating model of a stratospheric airship to optimize the solar array ...
