Modular energy storage device based on supercapacitors with integrated power converter
Univalor, QC, Canada
We are proposing an energy storage device based on supercapacitors that integrates the storage unit and the power converter in the same compact modular device made of low-cost, low-voltage components. The technology is well suited for energy recovery in vehicles and for power management in wind or solar power plants.
Primary Application Area: Energy & Efficiency
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: We are proposing one compact device for both energy storage and power conversion allowing maximized stored energy with no EMI. The device is suitable for any type of power conversion (AC/DC, AC/AC, DC/AC, DC/DC) and uses only low-cost, low-voltage components.
