LICAP's UC and LIC products can last for 10-15 years with no required maintenance. The TI bq25570 device harvests power in the microwatts to milliwatts range, from a variety of DC power sources. This device includes a programmable maximum power point tracking (MPPT) sampling network to optimize, for example, solar generated power for ultracapacitor charging.
The LC0800-380-ASW features 1M cycles lifetime, 10 years calendar life, low self-discharge, no thermal runaway, and high power density.
LICAP Technologies has partnered with Windurance LLC to develop an ultracapacitor retrofit solution to replace the existing battery-based energy storage and charger system in GE 30Nm & 20Nm wind turbine pitch battery boxes. It is designed as a “drop in” replacement not requiring any modification to the pitch control system box or operating system.
