Ultracapacitors Balance Gradients and Smooth Genset Power

Random high load variations can cause severe issues for Variable Speed Generators, or VSGs. These machines are used in renewable power generation (the application of interest in this blog post), but also in marine and shipbuilding, oil & gas industry, telecommunications, stand-by power, and a large number of other industries and applications. When it comes…
