4/20/2016 Duke Energy Testing New Battery and Ultracapacitor System in NC

Duke Energy has started testing a first-of-its-kind battery technology at its Rankin substation in Gaston County, North Carolina. The hybrid ultracapacitor battery energy storage system (HESS) will demonstrate multiple service applications, including extended operational life, rapid response, real-time solar smoothing and load shifting.

4/4/2016 Engine start module options

Truck OEMs such as Peterbilt and Kenworth have recently made ultracapacitor engine start modules (ESM) available as a factory-installed option. The ultracapacitor replaces one traditional battery dedicated to starting the vehicle.

3/28/2016 How to test for a voltage drain

What’s the proper testing procedure to find the source of the voltage drain? Mark Burnside, senior product manager of engine starting products for Maxwell Technologies, explains.

3/28/2016 Low voltage lowdown: Dealing with growing electrical load demands

With the massive amount of electrical demand placed on today’s trucks, the dangers of low voltage demands are a real consequence faced by today’s fleets. The entire start and charge process of the truck’s electrical system is impacted by low voltage situations. You’ll see the effect in lift gates, electric APUs, hotel devices or any component placing an electrical load on the truck’s batteries.

3/15/2016 Enabling the Wind Power Market in 2016

Driven by cost reduction and regulatory incentives, interest in wind power is at an all-time high, with more than 50GW of incremental capacity added globally in both 2014 and 2015, according to the Global Wind Energy Council. In the United States, wind comprised 47 percent of new generation capacity, and China added approximately 23GW of new capacity, the GWEC found. Likewise in Europe, offshore capacity grew 200 percent within the first half of 2015.

3/14/2016 Duke to test battery storage in North Carolina as renewable energy backup

Learning from a battery testing project at the same substation that ran from 2012 to 2014, Duke will use fast-response ultracapacitors to smooth out solar power when there are fluctuations, such as when clouds block out the sun, the company said in a March 10 news release. The ultracapacitors run in combination with batteries from Aquion Energy. Unlike batteries, which use a chemical reaction, ultracapacitors store energy in an electric field.
