Grid Applications

Power Generation

Securing alternative power sources is becoming a huge issue in many countries. The topic is being raised due to the finite nature of non-renewable energy sources and the increasingly pronounced effects of climate change. Wind and solar energy can make a difference. Due to the unpredictable nature of wind and solar, electric power generated by wind turbines solar pannels is highly erratic and may affect both the power quality and the planning of power systems. Supercapacitor energy storage systems may play an important role in wind and solar power applications by storing the energy and controlling the distribution .

Transmission and Distribution

Efficient transfer of electrical energy — from generating power plants to electrical substations and then to consumers — has to be efficient and reliable. Blackouts can happen anytime without warning. Some of the largest companies in the world have suffered losses of up to hundreds of millions of dollars due to disturbances lasting for a few seconds or even milliseconds. Supercapacitorr energy storage can be the ideal solution for different power quality issues, including magnitude, flicker, dip, swell, and interruption events, because of their ability to react practically instantly.

Load Balancing and Peak Load Shaving

Energy can be stored during the period when charge rate is lower and deliver during peak charge rates. This will reduce the impact on the distribution grid and cost saving for the end user.
