Hybrid Energy Storage

Physical Storage Systems (UltraCap)

UltraCaps store energy using an electric field

Highlights:

  • very fast charging and discharging
  • maximum efficiency and lifetime
  • up to 1,000,000 cycles
  • high energy density
  • minimum size / weight

Chemical Storage Systems (Battery)

Batteries on the other hand use a chemical reaction to store energy.

The charging and discharging process takes place comparatively slowly.


Hybrid store: the "sprinting marathon runner"

As can be seen in the graph, the characteristics of SuperCaps and batteries do not match.

 

-> the passive combination brings only a few advantages

DC/DC Booster

The active connection via a DC / DC booster combines the advantages of both storage technologies:
