Ultracapacitor-powered Start-stop Systems in Passenger Cars

Start-stop systems in today’s passenger cars are almost always powered by lead-acid or AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) batteries, but the relatively high cranking power and frequent start-stop cycles degrade batteries quickly. In addition, poor low temperature performance limits the functionality of battery-based solutions. From an environmental standpoint, lead-acid batteries are an unnecessary problem – one…

Wind Turbine Pitch Control – Ultracapacitors Solving Unreliability & Unpredictability with the Lowest TCO

It’s difficult to appreciate just how big wind turbines are without getting up close. A 10 MW turbine can have blades longer than 70 meters, which also means the blades and the turbine itself must withstand massive forces. This, in turn, means that there are several basic safety requirements wild turbines must adhere to, the…
