EDC Serial Number EDC0000160
Title EPSRC Manifest Supercapacitor System Efficiency Test, Newcastle University
Data Location
EDC Stored Dataset
Description The experiments were conducted using an Energy Storage System (ESS) in the Smart Grid laboratory at Newcastle University, that includes transformers and converters interfacing to the grid, and various energy storage assets. They tested the efficiency of the system components, including the supercapacitor bank and associated power converters. Tests were performed to control the supercapacitor power steps, while measuring power at the terminals of each system component. Efficiencies of the system components for various initial values of supercapacitor state of charge (SoC) are presented in the data files and accompanying report.

Other Information

The data were collected as part of an experiment within the MANIFEST project to demonstrate the efficiency of the supercapacitor energy storage system and associated power converters in the Smart Grid Laboratory at Newcastle University, UK.

The EPSRC funded Multi-scale ANalysis for Facilities for Energy STorage (Manifest) Project (EP/N032888/1) aimed to study and investigate the capabilities of energy storage systems installed in UK Universities.
