The focus of this talk will be to provide information of electrochemical systems capable of providing pulse power for a variety of applications, from electric buses to pulse power weapons. There will be a review of the various primary and rechargeable batteries, as well as a discussion of the evolution of electrochemical capacitors. Finally, there will be a discussion of hybrid systems between batteries and ultracapacitors.
After listening to the lecture, students should
- Have an understanding of the basic differences between batteries and ultracapacitors
- Understand how the two systems can work together to provide unique power delivery solutions.
