ECCAP Symposium
Large EC Capacitor Technology and Application
Tuesday, June 7 to Wednesday, June 8, 2011

Advanced Automotive Battery Conferences

AABC Europe 2011 – ECCAP Symposium

Session 3:
EC Capacitor Storage System Applications

EC Capacitor modules are designed to optimally meet energy-storage requirements of specific applications at the highest level of reliability and lowest possible cost. In some applications, the EC Capacitor is the only energy-storage technology used while in others it is combined with power generation or battery storage. We review in this session EC module design and system engineering to meet performance goals of key applications, including those related to transportation, to industrial energy conservation, and to the utility grid.
