Maxwell Technologies Launches New Transformer for Smart-Grid Measurement

Maxwell Technologies introduced its new electronic voltage transformer for smart-grid applications. The transformer is the latest addition to Maxwell's family of high-voltage capacitors and capacitive dividers, and is used for digital current and voltage monitoring in smart grids to guarantee measurement accuracy. The new transformer can replace the traditional capacitive voltage transformer, at about one-third the size and weight.

Win Inertia Incorporates Maxwell Technologies Ultracapacitors for Braking Energy Recuperation in Spanish Rail System

Maxwell Technologies, Inc. announced that Win Inertia is using its ultracapacitors for a stationary wayside braking energy recuperation system at an electric rail system in Cerro Negro, Spain. Win Inertia designed and installed the system under a contract with the Spanish government's Administrator of Railway Infrastructures (ADIF). In this installation, the system also enables ADIF to store excess energy in a battery bank that supplies an electric vehicle (EV) charging station located at the rail station. The facility also seamlessly integrated a photovoltaic (PV) generator to supply additional energy if required. The recuperation system employs Win Inertia's SHAD(R) hybrid control technology (international patent pending) to integrate batteries and Maxwell ultracapacitors to increase energy recovery efficiency and reduce stress on the batteries, thereby extending battery life. Ultracapacitors' rapid charge/discharge characteristics uniquely enable them to capture and store more energy during each braking event than battery-based systems, which have limited ability to absorb energy in the few seconds required to stop a vehicle. Win Inertia's high-efficiency hybrid energy storage and power delivery system furthers ADIF's return on investment as it enables dual use of the recuperated energy for rail vehicle propulsion and EV charging. By converting kinetic energy into stored electric energy through regenerative braking, the system recovers 8% to 10% of the total energy used by the railway system, which is then used to power the EV charging station. Unlike batteries, which produce and store energy by means of a chemical reaction, ultracapacitors store energy in an electric field. This electrostatic energy storage mechanism enables ultracapacitors to charge and discharge in as little as fractions of a second, perform normally over a broad temperature range (-40 degrees C to +65 degrees C), operate reliably through one million or more charge/discharge cycles and resist shock and vibration. Maxwell offers ultracapacitor cells ranging in capacitance from one to 3,000 farads and multi-cell modules ranging from 16 to 160 volts.
