Aarsleff Goes Green with Modern Hybrid Power

Clayton Power made it possible for Per Aarsleff to both go green and reduce costs by clever implementation of mobile hybrid power systems based on lithium technology.

 

Lithium ion batteries are more powerful and provide more energy for high consumption than traditional lead–acid batteries. They can be discharged with up to 80% compared to the traditional 30% to 50% without damaging the battery and are charged extremely fast, in down to 50 minutes for a 12V – 100Ah lithium battery.

Lithium ion battery packs are built of a number of individual lithium cells which must all maintain the same voltage for the battery to stay functional.

The integrated Battery Management System (BMS) ensures a long lifetime, safe handling –and high-accuracy State of Charge (SOC) calculations.

Therefore, all lithium ion batteries from Clayton Power have an integrated Battery Management System (BMS) that automatically balances the cells during charge, discharge and in idle mode. The BMS monitors the voltage and temperature of each lithium ion cell which influences the functionality of the battery.

Maxwell Technologies - Ultracapacitor Solutions for Wind Pitch Control

Variable wind conditions at a wind farm can impact the quality of power output. Maxwell's ultracapacitors provide burst power for electric blade pitch control systems to optimize wind turbine output and/or to ensure rotor speed remains within a safe operating range. In addition, Maxwell's ultracapacitors have demonstrated their durability and reliability at -40 to 65°C, which enables pitch control systems to meet grueling wind energy expectations under extreme conditions. Maxwell ultracapacitors are reliable for hundreds of thousands of cycles, and nearly eliminate site visits to change out batteries. Our wind-system ultracapacitors range from 350 to 3,400 farad cells and integrated modules of 16, 75 and 160 volts. Maxwell ultracapacitors have a proven track record of success in over 30,000 turbines in operation worldwide.
