deployment Note regarding lithium lifetime:
2019 pH 1: 120 / 205 AH used
Lithium ions charged prior to deployment: 10.123 AH 8 23 = 232 AH
Lithium ions in lab about 44.2% charge level = 4.470 AH / cell --> (23 * 4.470) = 103 AH remaining
According to packs we used about 129 AH, glider 120 AH
5.65 / 10.123 AH used = 56 % used
120/205 = 58.5% used, pretty close
~ 205 AH for winter mission

deployment 2019-02-11 19:17:15: Glider had old TWR foam in it. Changed climb to 29 degrees to help VV match dives.

deployment 2019-02-11 19:16:43 Noticed diverting VV. Then noticed avg battpos goigng forward. Looks like foam started compressing 110m +. Sending back to NJ for recovery. Limited depths to 75 m, maybe more.

deployment Keeping it on deep side until first lane. Eventually will turn off surface CTD, leave pH on for fouling prevention.

dkaragon
deployment Some quick notes that will be revised:
about .2%/day liion self drain
knee is at about 12.x V, below 13 be careful
temp derating maybe 10%
23 packs of 4S3P (10.2 AH nominal)

They are charged to about 9.9 Ah, de-rate 10% and 5% for self discharge --> 8.46 AH
8.46 * 23 = 195 AH

Using that until I learn more
