Energy Storage Solution

An Energy Storage Solution consists of one or more Energy Storage Modules.

An Energy Storage Module (ESM) is similar to a Capacitor Module in that it stores energy in a capacitor bank. The important differences are:

  1. An ESM will generally have a lot more capacitance (20mF or more) than a typical Capacitor Module, and therefore can store a lot more energy
  2. Has its own power transistors to control energy flow to and from the DC Bus
  3. Operates under its own voltage range, separate from the shared DC Bus of the servo system
  4. Can also add Expansion Modules (EM) storage capcitors to further increase energy storage
  5. Other forms of energy storage include Double Layer Capacitors (DLC) and batteries
