Appendix H: Testing Ultracapacitors Guide
Appendix H: Testing Ultracapacitors GuideMaxwell Technologies tests its ultracapacitors, using a straightforward constant current charge/discharge cycle. A constant current discharge test may be useful for customer evaluation of the product prior to application testing.All ultracapacitors are stored discharged for safety. We recommend completely discharging any capacitors that will not be installed into equipment, and installing a shorting strap or wire across the terminals.Below is a list of equipment required to perform a typical constant current discharge test: Bidirectional power supply (supply/load) Or, separate power supply and programmable load (constant current capabl…
