Where GTCAP Supercapacitors Used?


Ultracapacitort Modules

A supercapacitor (SC) (sometimes ultracapacitor, formerly electric double-layer capacitor (EDLC)) is a high-capacity electrochemical capacitor with capacitance values much higher than other capacitors (but lower voltage lim-its) that bridge the gap between electrolytic capacitors and rechargeable batteries. They typically store 10 to 100 times more energy per unit volume or mass than electrolytic capacitors, can accept and deliver charge and dsicharge much faster than batteries, and tolerate many more charge and discharge cycles than rechargeable batteries. They are however 10 times larger than conventional batteries for a given charge.

A rapidly emerging and increasingly applied technology, ultracapacitors are capable of storing and discharging energy very quickly and effectively.

Capture energy from regenerative braking systems and release power to assist in train acceleration, and used for vehicle power where overhead wiring systems are not available.

Supercapacitor/battery combinations in electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) are well investigated. A 20 to 60% fuel reduction has been claimed by recovering brake energy in EVs or HEVs. The ability of super capacitors to charge much faster than batteries, their stable electrical properties, broader temperature range and longer lifetime are suitable, but weight, volume and especially cost mitigate those advantages.

Supercapacitors lower energy density makes them unsuitable for use as a stand-alone energy source for long distance driving. The fuel economy improvement between a capacitor and a battery solution is about 20% and is available only for shorter trips. For long distance driving the advantage decreases to 6%. Vehicles combining capacitors and batteries run only in experimental vehicles.

The supercapacitors recaptured braking energy and delivered starting energy. Fuel consumption was reduced by 10 to 15% compared to conventional diesel vehicles. Other advantages included reduction of CO2 emissions, quiet and emissions free engine starts, lower vibration and reduced maintenance costs

Supercapacitors store the solar energy and supply 2 LED lamps, providing 15 W power consumption overnight. The supercapacitors can last more than 10 years and offer stable performance under various weather conditions, including temperatures from +70 to below -40°C.

4. Military (cold start)
Due to the rapid ultracapacitots charging and discharging, can adapt to a wide range of work, long cycle life, and true maintenance-free power supply, GTCAP ultracapacitors can be used as a submarine and ship main and auxiliary power supply equipment, ultra low temperature starting power supply of tanks and armored carriers; power of spacecraft and radar;  main and quxiliary of field hospital medical equipment and individual small radio station. In very cold regions, using super capacitors as cold start power of military vehicles to promote alpine combat capabilities. Even under-25℃ under low temperature conditions they remain good maneuverability.

Super capacitor provides power for opened doors for aircraft, service life of up to 25 years, 140000 flight hours. On the ground, regular operations and emergency operations, the door must be opened, in flight, the door must be closed and locked, slide must be expanded when you need emergency.

6. UPS(Uninterruptible Power Supply

UPS work tends to be in power or voltage transient wave collapse plays a decisive role in the first few seconds to a few minutes. You need to test batteries before UPS running because batteries life is short and need regular maintance. In the backup system of data protection, UPS provides a relatively short period of time you want.

Ultracapacitors is obviously much better than batteries in for UPS. Its output current rises to almost no delay up to hundreds of amperes even thousands of amperes, and can be recharged quickly and can be achieved in a very short time energy storage. Let alone its long cycle life is 1,000,000 times and free of maintaince in 10 years, this will make UPS really maintenance-free.
