Hello, Chicago! Maxwell at AWEA Windpower 2018

Hello, Chicago! Maxwell at AWEA Windpower 2018

| Yayoi Suzuki, Sr. Global Marketing Communications Manager

This week we are in the Windy City for the American Wind Energy Association’s Windpower exhibition—are you?

Be sure to stop by the Maxwell Technologies booth (#1843) to meet with our wind team members and ask your questions about ultracapacitor (supercapacitor) energy storage for wind pitch control.

Here’s what we have in store at Windpower:

Attend a talk by our field applications engineer.
Charles Cook, Maxwell’s senior field applications engineer, will share the technical and business advantages of ultracapacitor energy storage for emergency pitch control systems. Mr. Cook works closely with wind farm operators to retrofit turbines with ultracapacitors for higher performance and reliability over time. He will provide his insight into the common challenges with battery-based emergency pitch control systems and how wind farms can streamline operations with highly durable, fast-responding ultracapacitors.

Wednesday, May 9
3:00 – 3:25 p.m.
"Ultracapacitors: Improving Operational Safety and Reliability in Emergency Pitch Systems"
Charles Cook, Maxwell Technologies Sr. Field Applications Engineer

Get one-on-one face time with Maxwell’s wind team.
The top reason for attending Windpower is the valuable face time we get with our customers and industry colleagues. We want to hear about your current goals for streamlining operations at your wind energy farm and look forward to answering your specific questions. Find us in booth #1843.



Grow your knowledge of ultracapacitor energy storage solutions for wind turbines.
A growing number of wind farm operators are choosing ultracapacitor energy storage for emergency pitch control systems for its durability in the demanding turbine environment, long lifetime, minimal maintenance and ultra-fast charge/discharge capability.

We will feature our retrofit solutions for emergency pitch backup systems designed to significantly reduce the time and effort required to replace battery system components. Discover Maxwell’s 160-volt, 75-volt and 16-volt ultracapacitor energy storage options for pitch control in addition to our retrofit solutions.

Learn the advantages of Maxwell’s ultracapacitor energy storage solutions over lead-acid batteries for the critical pitch function and why our solutions are deployed in over 61,000 wind turbines worldwide.

You can visit our AWEA Windpower 2018 event page to download a customer case study and access additional information.

We look forward to meeting you this week!
