Maxwell Technologies has announced its ultracapacitors have been selected by Beijing Huadian Tianren Electric Power Control Technology as the core component of a wind farm energy storage demonstration project.
Compared with conventional batteries, ultracapacitors discharge and recharge power quicker, with a longer lifetime and better performance in low temperatures. Maxwell's ultracapacitors are suitable for for stabilising short-term power output fluctuation in wind farms and cabling in large-scale deployments, ensuring reliable access to wind-generated power on the grid. The demonstration project has deployed 1,152 Maxwell 56V/130F ultracapacitor modules.
