The Electrochemical Society To Meet: The Detroit Chapter of the Electrochemical Society will meet Tuesday, Oct. 30 to discuss “Supercapacitor Energy Storage for Hybrid Electric Vehicles: An Examination and Discussion of Why Not and Why” at Lawrence Technological University, 21000 W. 10 Mile road, Southfield. The meeting will be held in Room 406 of the Taubman Welcome Center, starting with 5:30 p.m. reception, 6:30 p.m. dinner and 7:30 p.m. for the program. Presenter Dennis Corrigan, research professor at the college of engineering at Wayne State University, is the presenter. Hybrid electric vehicles with battery energy storage are now commercially available providing dramatic fuel economy benefits. With their superior power-to-energy ratio, supercapacitors offer an alternative energy storage technology that seems even better suited for the hybrid electric vehicle applications. However, despite successful applications in hybrid electric transit buses, supercapacitors have not been aggressively pursued for hybrid passenger vehicle applications. Perceived technical barriers include a deficit in energy in comparison to formal USABC performance targets. Power pulse and driving cycle power profile data will be presented to challenge this prevailing viewpoint. The cost is $20 for members, $22 for guests and $10 for students. RSVP by Oct. 22 to Neil Johnson at email@example.com. More at www.electrochem.org/ecs/sections/detr/detr.htm.
