Peak Shaving and Load Leveling

Peak Shaving and Load Leveling

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.

Highly variable loads introduce peak power consumption spikes that can be mitigated through the use of Maxwell ultracapacitors to rapidly supply and absorb power as needed to smooth power and reduce electricity demand. When utilized in conjunction with batteries, the ultracapacitors serve all fast responding functions and battery capacity can be committed to slower, longer term energy storage.

    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.
