Ultracapacitors on the Road

We'll soon start to see a hybrid energy-storage solution of batteries and ultracapacitors to address multiple applications simultaneously, like e-turbo, active suspension, regeneration, power steering, electric brake boosters and more.

Ultracapacitor Usage in Wind Turbine Pitch Control Systems

Ultracapacitors have other significant advantages compared to batteries such as high power density, high efficiency, long service life, predictable aging, wide operating temperature range and light weight.

Shaw Lynds, Senior Research at Maxwell Technologies, Inc Explains Ultracapacitors

In general, ultracapacitors are great solutions whenever the power demand is high, but the duration is short. For example, we are expanding into the diesel truck market, where the high power demand of engine starting can place a great strain on the batteries, greatly lowering their useful life.

Ultracapacitors Double Life of Wave Measurement Buoys

By working together with a primary battery, the ultracapacitors have helped to at least double the lifetime, which means that battery life no longer determines the service interval for the buoy.

ULTRACAPACITORS -Used in Hybrid-Electric Drive Systems

Batteries have high-energy capability while ultracapacitors have high power capability. In an optimal hybrid storage system, both technologies could be combined in a way that maximizes the benefits of both.

ULTRACAPACITORS AND THE HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLE

Compact in size, ultracapacitors can store an incomparably higher amount of energy than conventional capacitors. Indeed, ultracapacitors are currently available on the market with capacitance ranges up to 2700 Farads, and they can release that energy at both a high or low rate.

Reliable Pitching: Ultracapacitors And Wind Turbine Pitch Systems

Ultracapacitors prove to be a high-reliability solution for the severe power pulses needed for wind turbine pitch control.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
