Maxwell ultracapacitors enable engineers to design-in solutions into wind systems that optimize energy, efficiency, performance, reliability and cycle life that were not available before. For over a century, our world has been powered by carbon fuels. In recent years, concerns about global warming and the harmful effects of fuel emissions has created new demands for cleaner and sustainable energy sources such as wind. Today, you will find Maxwell’s durable, maintenance-free ultracapacitors in thousands of wind turbines worldwide.
Wind turbine operators need systems they can depend on such as Maxwell ultracapacitors that perform reliably for years in all weather conditions with zero or minimal maintenance. Maxwell ultracapacitors have demonstrated their durability and reliability at temperatures ranging from -40° to +65° C, which enables electric pitch control systems to meet the grueling wind energy expectations under virtually any conditions. Implementing an ultracapacitor solution provides a versatile, green and maintenance-free energy that delivers power bursts safely and reliably for more than a million cycles and virtually eliminates site visits to change out batteries.
