Initial ideas: Use an app to identify which cell is wrong. Complicated because it requires network protocols and technology. What about an Energizer Test Strip Idea?
I wish there was a way to figure out which of the cells is not working?
Each Alt-Gen cell has a programmed chip that can contain basic instructions for diagnostics but the has not been developed to-date.
Each cell generates energy. How can I use that energy to know if a cell if generating less than optimal energy because it's defective or damaged?
The Alt-Gen energy cell array can be fitted with external devices that feed back to the individual cells.
The problem is that cells will generate varying levels of power depending on wind speed.
Trent the technician installs a small wind meter and hooks it into the energy circuitry. The ROM is able to read data input from the energy stream.
If I hooked up a small wind meter, I could send the wind speed back to the cells. Depending on the speed, I could establish a baseline energy output for each speed increment.
Damaged or defective cells are now easily identified. In the cases where a light can't be used (for visual identification reasons) a small heat signature can be produced readable through a FLIR scope when in covert field deployments.
Using this system, when a cell produces less than expected output over an hour, it will set off an LED light that it needs to be swapped out.
Corporal George solves a technology problem with some simple techniques on how to think about the problem using Personas and User Stories
When I initially thought about this problem, I thought a mobile app would be required but in the end a much simpler solution could be developed thanks to the energy and technology already in the energy cells.
