The need for a fast charging and reliable source of portable energy storage has grown dramatically through the proliferation of electrification in recent years. This session outlines the key differences between supercapacitors and batteries in terms of construction, specifications, capabilities, and applications...
The presentation will cover the steps necessary to correctly match the energy storage capacity target for the application with different ultracapacitor sizes, while keeping in mind the voltage and current limitations of the power electronics. Attendees will learn that cell capacity and series/parallel configurations provide many options and variables to achieve the best solution.
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.
Key takeaways: see how Eaton supercapacitors are revolutionizing warehouse automation systems; learn about the supercapacitor technologies that supply of millions of charge/discharge cycles and wide operating temperature range; and discover how Eaton's broad product line of supercapacitor cells and modules provide flexibility.
This presentation will cover a brief look into why supercapacitors are growing in popularity for power backup systems, their comparison versus batteries, and even go through a mathematical design-in example.
