Abstract The value of “ultracapacitors” (also referred to as “supercapacitors” or “electric double layer capacitors” in some literature) as an augmentation device when placed in parallel with “electrochemical” energy storage (i.e. battery) is presented in this paper. Since ultracapacitors possess unique attributes due to their higher value of energy storage density (or Joules/WattHrs per mass) compared to conventional capacitors while maintaining the peak power providing capability (to some degree) typical of conventional capacitors they may provide a near term solution in applications demanding longer battery operating life when placed in parallel. Such demands may be pronounced by the onset of More-Electric-Aircraft peak loads and “cold-crank” Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) electric-starting in demanding cold temperature environments. The potential benefits of an ultracapacitor in parallel with a battery will be illustrated through a very simple lab demonstration as well as a more complex system consisting of a large motor inrush load (cold-cranking condition) through the use of a computer simulation tool (Simulink).

This paper explores the problem of complex safety/security critical software Validation and Verification (V&V). Current methods of V&V, which certify that the software is fit for use, require a significant amount of touch labor - future complex software developments such as NextGen Air Traffic Control will face cost hurdles so high that it may not be deployable. We will take the current V&V technology beyond formal methods (the current state of the art), reducing the V&V problem to an NP-Hard optimization problem solvable by emerging Adiabatic Quantum Computing (AQC) hardware and processing methods. The Quantum V&V (QVV) approach can go beyond software V&V, and can span the entire complex system.
