Ioxus Intro 8 27 2009 No Spec Sheets

  1. 1. Mission<br />Ioxus, Inc. develops, manufactures and commercializes innovative ultracapacitor technologies to serve a wide range of power delivery and energy storage markets<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc. All rights reserved.<br />
  2. 2. Ioxus Quick Bio<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc. All rights reserved.<br />
  3. 3. What is that name?<br />Ioxus is a Greek word that means power<br />EDLC or Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors are sometimes called Supercapacitors or Ultracapacitors<br /><ul><li>P-EDLC or Pseudo Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors are sometimes called Hybrid Capacitors</li></ul>© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc. All rights reserved.<br />
  4. 4. What is an EDLC?<br />An EDLC is a device that has higher power density than batteries and much higher energy density than other types of capacitors<br />EDLCs operate in the 0 – 2.7 VDC range<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc. All rights reserved.<br />
  5. 5. What is a P-EDLC?<br />P-EDLCs are a hybrid between an EDLC and a lithium ion battery in a single cell<br />P-EDLCs have more energy storage than EDLCs<br />P-EDLCs operate in the 0 – 2.3 VDC range<br />P-EDLCs have twice the capacitance of EDLCs with the same physical dimensions<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc. All rights reserved.<br />
  6. 6. How does an EDLC work?<br />EDLCs store energy by polarizing an ionic solution at the surfaces of highly porous carbon electrodes<br />Nanoscale charge separation coupled with enormous surface area, makes multiFarad capacitors possible<br />Ioxus Electrode at 1000X<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc.

  7. 7. What does it do?<br />EDLCs provide sustained power output when demand changes abruptly, such as when accelerating in an electric vehicle<br />EDLCs can absorb current much faster than batteries, allowing them to fully charge in seconds to minutes<br />Low internal resistance makes EDLCs much more powerful and efficient that batteries<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc. All rights reserved.<br />
  8. 8. How do I use it?<br />A single EDLC cell operates in the 0 – 2.7 VDC range, so they must be connected in series to meet higher working voltages, much like cells are serially connected in a storage battery<br />A pack of EDLC cells connected in parallel to a DC voltage source will act as a low pass filter, absorbing current spikes while keeping voltage from changing quickly<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc.

  9. 9. Why Ioxus EDLCs?<br />Ioxus cells provide more power per unit of mass than any other brand of EDLC<br />Ioxus is the only EDLC manufacturer in the United States that makes its own electrode<br />Ioxus can make custom tailored solutions for applications with innovative package design<br />Ioxus cells are environmentally friendly and RoHS compliant<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc.

  10. 10. Very Low Maintenance<br />EDLCs are rated for 500,000+ full charge and full discharge cycles<br />P-EDLCs are rated for 20,000+ cycles<br />Once they are installed, they are maintenance free for a 10 year or longer service life<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc. All rights reserved.<br />
  11. 11. Energy Harvesting<br />EDLCs have charge-to-discharge efficiencies above 90% over a large temperature and power range making them perfect for energy storage in off-grid renewable energy powered applications<br />Batteries have charge-to-discharge efficiencies of 60% or less, depending on conditions<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc.

  12. 12. Battery vs. Battery + EDLCs<br />Battery Current<br />Forklift Application<br />A single lift in this example draws over 700A peak from a battery<br />When a bank of EDLCs is connected in parallel with the battery, the current spikes are smoothed out and magnitude is reduced<br />Discharge curve of an Ioxus EERS in a material handling application<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc.

  13. 13. Power Factor Correction<br />EDLCs can be used to limit the effects of reactive loads on the power grid<br />All 4 quadrants of apparent power can be actively controlled to move the power factor close to unity<br />Source: EESAT 2005 “Transmission Ultracapacitor Utilizing ETO and UCAP,” S.

  14. 14. Concentrated Solar Tracking<br />Concentrated solar collectors need to be constantly repositioned to face the sun<br />EDLCs can provide the momentary power needed to move the actuators<br />The collectors can be repositioned at the end of the day without power input from collector or power grid<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc.

  15. 15. Distributed Energy Harvesting<br />EDLCs can provide a variable energy buffer for renewable energy powered structures<br />Compact wind turbines can provide energy from updrafts for lighting, recharging electric vehicles, etc.<br />Parking Garage Lighting<br />Wind Turbines<br />EDLCs<br />© 2007-2009 Ioxus, Inc.
