Energy storage systems provide viable solutions for improving efficiency and power quality and reliability issues in DC/AC power systems including a power grid with considerable penetrations of renewable energy. The storage systems are also essential for aircraft powertrains, ship power systems, electric and hybrid electric vehicles to meet the peak load economically and improve the system’s reliability and efficiency. Significant development and research efforts have recently been made in high power storage technologies for supercapacitors, superconductive magnetic energy storage (SMES) and flywheels. These devices have a very high power density and fast response time and are suitable for applications with rapid charge and discharge requirements. In this Presentation, we will discuss the latest technological developments of these devices as well as advancements in the lithium-ion battery, the most power dense commercially available battery. A comparative analysis of these high power storage technologies in terms of power, energy, cost, life and performance will be described. This paper also presents the applications, advantages and limitations of these technologies in a power grid and transportation systems as well as critical systems and pulse loads.
