1/17/2017 Power outage prevention: How fleets can combat the growing problems of hotel loads

When we talk about parasitic loads, we are quick to point the finger at drivers and their expectations of home-away-from-home creature comforts. That means TVs, microwaves, refrigerators, game systems and DVD players—all of which end up putting significant strain on a truck’s battery and electrical system.

12/2/2016 Land Line Magazine Maintenance Q&A: Clean idle and cheap trucks

Idling, even with the newest, most fuel-efficient engines, still uses half a gallon to a gallon an hour. I personally feel that ultracapacitors for starting coupled with AGM battery- powered air conditioners and fuel-fired heaters are often the most economical idle-reduction devices in the long run, but auxiliary power units, even though they also require periodic maintenance, are better than idling even a Certified Clean Idle engine.

11/28/2016 Supercapacitors: a good fit for the right niche

The ability to rapidly charge and discharge supercapacitors is one of the reasons companies such as Maxwell Technologies are suggesting they can be used to harvest energy from regenerative braking systems or provide a high power burst to help with surge applications. I have used supercapacitors in just such an application where a high current was required from batteries which couldn’t actually deliver the high current. While I could have used larger batteries, I didn’t need the extra storage capacity and it would have increased the size of the product too much.

11/2/2016 First Commercial Use of Lithium-Ion Capacitor Technology in China

Maxwell Technologies Inc. recently announced the first commercial application of lithium-ion capacitors, developed in conjunction with China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC-SRI), China’s largest rail manufacturer. The technology will be used for rapid energy regeneration in the trolley system in the capital city of Hunan province in China. Following last year’s announcement of Maxwell’s strategic partnership with CRRC-SRI to collaborate on developing next-generation capacitive energy storage solutions, this project is the first to leverage Maxwell’s new lithium-ion technology and validates its unique value proposition for rail applications.
