SIRIUS CAPACITOR MODULE Components

The SIRIUS CAPACITOR MODULE has the following major components:

1. KiloWatt Labs Super Capacitors

There are the individual energy storage units inside the SIRIUS.
The super capacitors are designed and manufactured by KiloWatt Labs and boast an ever-increasing high energy density of 80Wh/kg.
The super capacitors has a minimum, ever-improving, Graphene / rGO content of 98.3%.
The super capacitors are arranged and interconnected to provide the required voltage and storage capacity of the specific model.
For instance, inside the 7.1kWh SIRIUS CAPACITOR MODULE, there are 2400 individual super capacitors, arranged in a specific manner to provide 48VDC module with an overall energy capacity of 7.1 kWh.

2.  Capacitor Controllers

To prevent each super capacitor from discharging all it’s stored energy as quickly as possible, KiloWatt Labs designed unique, patent pending controlling electronics to control the discharge rate and voltage of each individual super capacitor. This controller is highly efficient and unique to the KiloWatt product range.
Multiple versions of the controllers exist and the most applicable version is selected for the required/desired charge and discharge rate of the model being built.

3. Interconnecting Wiring

All those individually controlled super capacitors are interconnected with circuitry and wiring. The current carrying capacity of the interconnecting circuitry and wiring are matched with the required / desired charge and discharge rate of the model being built.

4. Overall Monitoring, Balancing Controller

The SIRIUS CAPACITOR MODULE monitors:

  1. The health of the arranged super capacitors and capacitor controllers.
  2. Voltages
  3. Charge and Discharge rates
  4. Stored Energy etc.

5. Safety Circuit

– The SIRIUS CAPACITOR MODULE also has built in safety circuit that protects the entire unit when abnormal internal or external conditions are detected.   

CHARGE AND DISCHARGE RATES

SIRIUS CAPACITOR MODULES are manufactured at different C ratings.
Presently KiloWatt Labs produce Models from a 1C rating (charging in 1 hour) up to a 7C rating (charging in under 9 minutes) for different applications.

The desired charge and discharge rate directly affects the amount of current that will flow at any given moment.
The higher the allowed current, the more copper is required in the interconnecting wiring and controller circuitry.

The KiloWatt Labs super capacitors inside every SIRIUS CAPACITOR MODULE are capable of charging in 30 seconds, but the controllers, circuitry and wiring is matched with the product need.

The SIRIUS CAPACITOR MODULES that are suitable for the Solar PV  market has a C Rating of 1.35C
This means that the unit can be charge form 0% to 100% in 45 minutes.

For the 3.55kWh – 1.35C unit this rating equates to a charging and discharging current rating of 100A (48VDC) and

For the 7.1kWh – 1.35C unit this rating equates to a charging and discharging current rating of 200A (48VDC)

EVEN AT THE MAXIMUM RATED CHARGE AND DISCHARGE RATES THE SIRIUS CAPACITOR MODULE GENERATES MINIMAL HEAT BECAUSE THE ENERGY STORAGE IS NON-CHEMICAL IN NATURE.

EXPECTED LIFESPAN

The KiloWatt Labs Super Capacitor as the energy storage heart of the SIRIUS CAPACITOR MODULE, can provide an expected >1 million charge and discharge cycles.

The Controlling, Charging and Monitoring Circuitry has an expected lifespan of 45 years.
