Energy is swiftly becoming a gating issue in large scale storage systems, from high-performance computing (HPC) to data intensive applications. For example, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA)  is a large radio telescope array expected to be finished by 2024. Its dishes will produce about one exabyte (EB) of raw image data per day. However, the power envelope goal for the storage systems of fut...

In the attempt to tackle the issue of climate change, governments across the world have agreed to set global carbon reduction targets. For instance, the UK has agreed to reduce the green house gas emissions by 80% of 1990 levels by 2050 . In the pursuit of the carbon reduction, there has been a continuous shift towards the de-carbonisation of major infrastructures such as transport and energ...
Efficient and economic energy storage, if implemented in the current power infrastructure on a large scale, could bring about some of the greatest changes in the power industry in decades. Additionally, energy storage would improve the reliability and dynamic stability of the power system by providing stable, abundant energy reserves that require little ramp time and are less susceptible to var...
A Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) system stores energy in a superconducting coil in the form of a magnetic field. The magnetic field is created with the flow of a direct current (DC) through the coil. To maintain the system charged, the coil must be cooled adequately (to a “cryogenic” temperature) so as to manifest its superconducting properties – no resistance to the flow of cur...
The problems related to the differed time between production and use of electrical energy produced by renewable sources makes storage systems an integral part of Renewable Energy Sources (RES), especially for stand-alone systems. Furthermore, for grid-connected systems, the stability of the electric system and the quality and stability of the delivered voltage will result in a high quality syst...
Renewable energy sources (RES), especially wind power plants, have high priority of promotion in the energy policies worldwide. An increasing share of RES and distributed generation (DG), should, as has been assumed, provide improvement in reliability of electricity delivery to the customers. Paper presented here concentrates on electricity storage systems technologies and applications pinpoint...

In this paper, the development and optimization of Power Distribution Control Strategy (PDCS) have been
performed for a Hybrid Energy Storage Systems (HESS) of a Series Hybrid Electric Bus (SHEB). A
common PDCS is based on the use of Ultra-Capacitor (UC) pack. A new simple PDCS is developed as a
battery based one. For the battery based PDCS, four parameters ar...
