Investigation and design of large supercapacitor banks for grid energy storage system

Supercapacitors provide high power density, extra-long cycle life, and wide operating temperature ranges and are poised to grow rapidly in the energy storage market. They offer good complementary features to the batteries and can be used to implement fast cycling speed grid energy storage systems given the cost being driven down. With its own charging and manufacuturing technologies developed, the industry partner is set to move forward to design and implement large supercapacitor banks for distribution grid use. This research proposal is intended to identify and design optimal solutions for the targeted large supercapacitor bank, including its internal cell arrangements, balancing schemes, and investigate the behavior and performance of the designed systems.
