Description

The scope of the Water Filtration project is to design an electrically powered portable water filter capable of running without relying on a power grid. This filter could be used in remote areas, such as cabins, or even in areas that experience frequent power outages. The project will consist of the design and construction of the physical system as well as the design and implementation of the electrical system. The physical system will be able to function as desired with proper care and maintenance. The electrical system will have safety features such as a battery overcharge protector which will lengthen the life of the battery. The methods to reach this goal included the study of fluid dynamics, circuits, and electronics. It was also necessary to conduct research on filtration methods, solar panels, and product design. Our biggest accomplishments so far have been building a successful prototype, and reaching every deadline toward having a working product by the end of the semester.
