B.2 Selected FCS Power

Conversion from telemetered FCS power data in PSTA to a real power in mW

P_{fcs} = \frac{P_{max}{\times}tmd}{tmd_{max}}~~~~~~~~~~~~~[{\rm mW}]
\end{displaymath} (B.5)


tmd 	   =	   telemetry data value = PSTA1TS or PSTA2TS
tmd$_{max}$	=	maximum value of telemetry word = 4095
P$_{max}$	=	maximum commandable power = 50 mW
