Frequency Response/Regulation

Frequency Response/Regulation

Maxwell ultracapacitors can serve a variety of Industrial, Commercial, and Residential (behind the meter) applications for reducing electricity consumption and improving reliability to eliminate the risk of the damaging effects of brownouts and blackouts when a grid failure occurs.

There are short term variations in grid power generation and load that lead to frequency fluctuations on the order of seconds to minutes. These fluctuations must be tracked and balanced. Maxwell Ultracapacitors can be rapidly charged or discharged in response to a generation source frequency spike (over-generation) or dip (under-generation). In some cases, customers can be paid for this service.

    56 Volt UPS Module - Not Recommended For New Design

    Maxwell Technologies’ 56V series of ultracapacitor modules provide power during dips, sags in the main power source. In longer term outages, the modules provide transition/bridge power to a longer term back up source such as a motor-generator or fuel cell. For industrial applications, ultracapacitor modules provide power for graceful shutdown of process equipment.
