24/10/2016 - Laboratory test bench based on 2.7V and 3000F ultracapacitors modules
The work is related to the project SH2 in collaboration with GAMESA, where the group develops an important rule related to the prototypes and design. The laboratory test bench consists of an AC/DC converter connected to the electric grid and a DC/DC converter (3 phases in interleaving) connected between the previous converter and the module of ultracapacitors. The first converter regulates the voltage in the continuos stage to 120Vdc and the DC/DC converter regulates the charge and discharge current in the ultracapacitors to 200Arms. The module presented in the picture comprises 30 ultracapacitors connected in series with charge and discharge cycles at maximum continuous current.
