Skeleton Technologies ultracapacitor power generation applications

generator
gradient control

Ultracapacitor solution balances gradients and smooths genset power

Benefits of our solution

  • VSG can achieve immediate response <20 msec on load variations with high gradients
  • Engine can run at the most beneficial operating speed
  • Increased engine life through less wear and tear
  • Uninterruptible power supply in case engine is off

Challenge

High degree of random load variations

  • Background
  • Random high load variations can cause problems for Variable Speed
  • Generators to continuously supply power with high gradients
  • Key Challenges
  • High degree of random load variations
  • Maintaining stability of power generation
  • Operating efficiently and improving fuel economy
  • Longer restart time
  • known consequences
  • Generator power gradients outside the limits
  • VSG is not able to meet the load demand
  • Shorter lifetime of engine
