Energy Storage Simulation
We collaborate with NREL's Energy Storage Project.
Dual Energy Storage Evaluation
To demonstrate that lead-acid battery + ultracapacitor systems offer competitive advantages in some hybrid vehicle applications, we completed a study of 42V energy storage system options. This involved a comparison among:
- Lead-acid batteries
- Lithium-ion batteries
- Nickel-metal hydride batteries
- Lead-acid battery + ultracapacitors.
To compare them, we simulated the performance of these energy storage systems over cycles and indicated potential life cycle enhancements.
Energy Storage Modeling Improvements
We created a basic energy storage system model that highlights the potential cost and benefits of a dual technology system. The model incorporates multiple ADVISOR submodels.
