About this Book

Ultra-capacitors, used as short-term energy storage devices, are growing in popularity especially in the transportation and renewable energy sectors. This text provides an up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of ultra-capacitor theory, modeling and module design from an application perspective, focusing on the practical aspects of power conversion and ultra-capacitor integration with power electronics systems.

Key features: 

  • clearly explains the theoretical and practical aspects of ultra-capacitor, analysis, modelling and design 
  • describes different power conversion applications such as variable speed drives, renewable energy systems, traction, power quality, diesel electric hybrid applications 
  • provides detailed guidelines for the design and selection of ultra-capacitor modules and interface dc-dc converters
  • includes end-of-chapter exercises and design examples

This is an essential reference for power electronics engineers and professionals wanting to expand their knowledge of advanced ultra-capacitor energy storage devices and their application in power conversion. It is also a valuable resource  for industrial design engineers as well as academics and advanced students in power electronics who want to develop their understanding about this highly topical subject.
