Backup Power and UPS
Ultracapacitor energy storage provides multiple benefits to microgrids/islanded grids, independent distributed energy generators, and utilities. Maxwell Ultracapacitor products are uniquely suited to deliver excellent cost of ownership value by providing a long service life and excellent reliability. Within the context of a hybrid ultracapacitor + battery energy storage solution, ultracapacitors are utilized to perform fast response functions and extend battery lifetime.
On the grid, a reserve of power must be instantaneously ready to respond to a power outage/failure. Maxwell Ultracapacitors can supply rapid backup power as a "bridge” to maintain operations until a back-up generation source is brought on line.
