Therefore, they are generally connected in series for higher voltage applications. To ensure that each individual ultracapacitor in such a series configuration is not charged above its rated voltage, a cell balancing circuit is often included. OVERVIEW The Intronics UCAP16-58 module consists of six series connected 350 farad ultracapacitors with individual cell balancing circuitry.
This module is intended for use as part of larger systems where reliable energy storage is essential. Ultracapacitors are similar to other capacitors, except they have much greater capacitance, and are generally rated at 2.7 volts or less. The printed circuit board has extra thick (4oz) copper and high current screw type terminals. It can be used with solder connections, ring terminals and screws, as well as the high current screw terminal connector.ENERGY STORAGE This module has a capacitance of 58.3 farads at a maximum rated voltage of 16.4V. The stored energy of a capacitor is 1/2CV² , so if fully charged to 16.4V, this module will store 7840 joules (watt seconds). If charged to one voltage (V1) and discharged to a lower voltage (V2), the stored and released voltage is the difference between 1/2C(V1)² and 1/2C(V2)² or 1/2C(V1²-V2²).
So for example, charging the module to 16V and discharging it to 11V will mean the storage and release of 4313 joules, so discharging only 31% of the stored voltage releases 55% of the stored energy. BALANCING CIRCUIT The balancing circuit consists of high efficiency LED in series with a silicon diode connected across each ultracapacitor in the module. If the external power source can deliver more than 20 mA to the module, some form of external voltage limiting will be necessary. The balancing circuit will only balance the voltage between ultracapacitors in the module. It will not limit the module voltage.
Another benefit of the balancing circuit design is that the LEDs in the circuit will give a rough indication of the charge state of the module. If the LEDs are bright, the module is fully charged. If they are dim, it is above approximately 12V. If one or more LED is significantly different from the others, it may indicate a failed or marginal ultracapacitor.SELF DISCHARGE The balancing circuit is designed to leak current from each individual ultracapacitor as its voltage approaches the its maximum rated voltage of 2.7V. Thus, ultracapacitors that are higher charged will leak more than ultracapacitors that are less charged, thus balancing the total module voltage equally between all the ultracapacitors in the module. As the ultracapacitor voltage decreases, the leakage falls off rapidly, becoming less than 1% per day when the module voltage is under 13.4V (Chart 2).
