Skeleton Technologies ultracapacitor industrial peak load shaving applications

peak load shaving

Reduced peak load on grid connection point & reduced costs

Benefits of our solution

  • Reduce peak load on grid connection point
  • Bypass the limitation of supplied power from energy providers
  • Avoid costs for grid connection expansion
  • Reduce demand charge rates ($/kW) according to “shaved kWs”

Challenge

Limited power supply line for high peak loads

  • Background
  • Electric machines such as servo presses or simulator test equipment need high power for short durations
  • Key Challenges
  • High peak loads on grid connection point
  • Heavy load on electric equipment (cables, transformers, switches, etc.)
  • Limitation of supplied power from energy providers
  • known consequences
  • High demand charge rates ($/kW)
  • Energy provider prohibits power supply above certain level
  • Energy provider requires fees for grid connection expansion
