  • Technologies allow capacitors to be built with a capacitance of several farads in a volume on the order of a dime. There are a number of electrolytes, both aqueous and organic, available for use in these capacitors. The ultimate choice is governed by the application. In general, use of the organic electrolytes increases energy storage density and the internal resistance. For pulsed electrical actuation, capacitor or a battery capacitor combination would appear to be particularly attractive. Although batteries have high energy density, they suffer from low power density and a limited number of charge-discharge cycles. For high energy/power density applications,more » the ultimate device would possess the energy storage characteristics of a battery and the power characteristics of a capacitor. Electrochemical capacitor technology is a step in the right direction. In this paper, the authors describe the near-term and the current state-of-the-art in CDL and pseudocapacitor technology for application to devices such as electric propulsion and electric actuation in terms of energy density, power density, availability and cost. Specific applications to NASA and Navy needs will be presented.« less
  • The primary objective of this workshop is to obtain a clear understanding of the various details involved in developing electric utility models from public-domain information. The workshop is aimed at providing a thorough tutorial and a hands-on exercise in developing a set of relational databases that can be used to analyze the behavior of selected power systems. Because of several modeling details that can be utility-specific, issues that are common among all systems need to be addressed. These common issues include: Data collection from public-domain sources; generation of connectivity diagrams; generation/load/tie-line MW assignments; parameter database creation (.DAT); development of one-linemore » database (.OL); development of geographic database (.GEO); error-checking between databases; development of power-flow data files (.DCD and IEE); and power-flow analysis« less
