Skeleton Technologies ultracapacitor truck applications

Electrification
of Auxiliary Loads

Significant fuel savings & market leading energy density

Benefits of our solution

  • Ultracapacitor modules with market leading energy density
  • Significant fuel savings
  • Increased battery life
  • Higher peak performance
  • No need to idle engine for upfitter loads

Challenge

High peak loads on electrical system & short lifetime of batteries

  • Background
  • Traditionally auxiliary loads like engine cooling pumps and fans, power steering pump, brake system servo, power take off (PTO) have been actuated by the truck engine via crankshaft or auxiliary belts
  • Additional losses in fuel economy
  • In order to increase fuel economy these systems can be made electric and actuated only when needed
  • Key Challenges
  • High and frequent peak demands of electrical system
  • Upfitter loads require high peak power that are difficult to handle with batteries
  • known consequences
  • The battery and generator need to be oversized
  • Short battery lifetime because of frequent high-power peak loads
