Electrochemical Capacitors and Their Potential Application to Heavy Duty Vehicles 2000-01-3495

The challenge of providing adequate stored electrical energy for heavy-duty vehicles is an increasing one. Batteries must provide the power needed to crank the engine, and still have the energy capacity to supply power to the electrical loads used when the engine is not running. The use of electrochemical capacitors may permit more optimum design of the electrical energy storage system to reduce some of the compromises required in today's systems. This paper discusses the evaluation of electrochemical capacitors and how they could potentially be used to enhance the performance of energy storage systems for heavy-duty vehicles.
