Study of EDLC and its Usage in Stand-Alone Photovoltaic System
In recent years, Electric Double Layer Capacitors (EDLCs) are gradually accepted by people and used in different areas as storage devices. This paper studied the working mechanism of EDLC and discussed two kinds of models of EDLC. Based on the advantages of EDLC, this paper proposed EDLC-battery combine storage system in stand-alone photovoltaic system and designed Energy Control System (ECS). Test results show that the hybrid storage system can collect more energy generated by solar panels, enhance the power output ability of energy storage system and extend battery’s life.
