Charging Capacitor Bank to Store and Unstore Energy
Charging Capacitor Bank to Store and Unstore Energy -What is a designer to do when asked to provide 50 or a 100 per cent more output power beyond what is available from Converter charges super cap bank to supply large load demandthe input? The article below describes us about how this can be
accomplished by charging a capacitor bank to store energy until needed (Pump), and discharge it into the load (Dump) in a controlled manner, accordingly.
Providing current to the load from a charged capacitor is a matter of providing the correct amount of charge over a defined period of time according to the article which is well-written by John Betten Application Engineer of Texas Instruments.
We can find sequence such as how to implement the simple concept of providing the correct amount of charge over a defined period of time, an example of a constant power load, when deciding to use :
- a capacitor bank,
- the benefit of using super capacitors,
- the example circuit which is shown in figures,
- how to provide a constant power load, and the article was ended with:
However, even the power demands of a constant power load still can be accommodated by allowing a large voltage droop on a holdup capacitor followed by a switching regulator.
