Capacitive storage of electrical energy has gained increasing attention as today several types of very high capacity elements are on the market. Even though the so called ‘Supercaps’ named EDLC do not dispose of the storage power density of newest battery systems yet, they have some interesting qualities like very low internal resistance and leakage and virtually no restrictions of charge/discharge cycles.
Mostly in the field of Electro Mobility, EDLC’s are used to deliver high currents (start and acceleration) or to take up high currents (braking, deceleration). Similar to a Battery Simulation, EDLC Simulation allows emulating real EDLC arrays by REGATRON high quality bidirectional DC power supplies together with the Application Software CAPSim. Again, all time-critical computations run on-board the DC power supply in real-time, while the management and visualisation of process data is realized by a PC part. CAPSim features:
Note: Max. charge/discharge currents are finally determined by the limits of the used TC.GSS
