Using ultra-capacitors for covering energy peaks

Using ultra-capacitors for covering energy peaks

Author: Urmas Mägi

Manufacturing processes use often machines with powerful electrical motors. Machines’ working cycles depend on manufacturing process, but they often create largest power consumption during start-up. It means that energy amount delivered from distribution system needs to satisfy the need created during machine start-up. During other time consumable amount of energy is usually remarkable lower. Lowering such energy peaks could significantly decrease amounts of money paid for the electricity to distributor.

The idea is to improve situation with ultra-capacitors, which would cover energy need during machines’ startup and decrease electricity bills.
