In most energy storage scenarios, the tradeoffs between power density and energy density quickly come to the foreground. This is best illustrated in the automotive industry, where power density directly translates to acceleration and driving performance, while energy density translates to the total range achievable on a tank of gas or, for an electric vehicle, on a single recharge cycle. This is true across almost every application, from wearable electronics to microgrid power networks on a college campus.
This whitepaper from KYOCERA AVX will explore the advantages of SuperCapacitors, circuit level, uninterruptable power, and microgrid considerations, and the benefits that make them a more reliable option than traditional batteries.
