Supercapacitor Application in Transportation

Sep. 06, 2021

Supercapacitors are also known as electrochemical capacitors, electric double layer capacitors, and gold capacitors. In the automotive field, the application of supercapacitors is mainly divided into two categories, namely, car start-stop systems and pure supercapacitor cars. In this article we will talk about the role of supercapacitors in different fields.

Supercapacitors with fast charging and discharging ability have no fuel consumption during the entire start-stop process, and therefore become the choice of smart start-stop control systems, providing a broad stage for the application of supercapacitors in the automotive industry. Moreover, this application can reduce fuel consumption by 25%-40%, which can effectively achieve energy saving and emission reduction.

Super Capacitor for Rail Transport

When the rail vehicle is braking, the super capacitor will quickly recover the braking energy and store it, and then release the energy quickly when the vehicle accelerates, making energy recycling possible and playing a good role in energy saving.

AGV Logistics Truck

Traditional AGV logistics trucks mostly use lead-acid batteries, so they generally have the disadvantages of long charging time, low security, and occupying a large space when charging. After using the super capacitor, the charging process can be completed in less than one minute, which has high security and small space occupation. 

Super Capacitor Bus

This kind of bus is mostly used in urban buses, because in general, the urban bus lines are 30-40 kilometers or shorter, and the super capacitor has a battery capability of 50-60 kilometers, which can meet the normal operation of urban buses. Moreover, the super capacitor takes a short charging time as a power source and can be charged within a few minutes. Therefore, in the automotive industry, supercapacitors will have a broad space for development, which also provides unlimited room for imagination for its market growth.

The above content is the role of super capacitors in different application fields. With the rapid development of technology, the performance and quality of capacitors are also improved, and the application of capacitors in the future will be more extensive.
