  • Publication number: 20190199094
    Abstract: A system includes multiple hybrid energy storage modules (HESMs) configured to accept constant-current DC input power from a main power source. Each HESM has a plurality of outputs configured to sequentially or simultaneously provide both constant-current and constant-voltage output power to multiple loads, the loads comprising steady state, pulsating, or intermittent loads. Each HESM comprises a combined rotating electrical machine-inertial storage module and electro-chemical storage module configured to generate second power that augments or induces first power derived from the main power source, so as to permit constant power draw or constant current draw from the main power source, wherein the output power comprises the first power and the second power.

  • Patent number: 10298212
    Abstract: A hybrid energy storage system is configured to control pulsed power. A first dynamo-electric machine is coupled to an inertial energy storage device and has multiple input stator windings configured to accept input power from a source. A polyphase output stator winding is configured to deliver electric power having a first response time to a DC bus. A secondary energy storage system is coupled to the DC bus and is configured to convert its stored energy to electric power in a bidirectional manner. A second dynamo-electric machine has an input stator winding and at least one polyphase output stator winding coupled to a converter, the converter coupled to a DC output. A polyphase boost exciter is configured to derive energy from the DC bus and excite the second machine input stator winding, wherein the second machine is configured to be excited at a faster rate than the first response time of the first machine.

  • Publication number: 20190036336
    Abstract: A system includes first and second sources configured to provide power to first and second medium-voltage direct current (MVDC) buses, respectively. The system also includes a rotating electrical machine having first and second primary windings and first and second secondary windings. Each primary winding is electrically connected to one of the first and second MVDC buses. The rotating electrical machine is configured to receive the power from the first and second MVDC buses. Each secondary winding is configured to provide output power to a pulsed load. The system further includes at least one battery or ultra-capacitor subsystem electrically connected to the rotating electrical machine. The at least one battery or ultra-capacitor subsystem is configured to receive electrical energy from and provide electrical energy to the rotating electrical machine.

  • Patent number: 9531247
    Abstract: A multi-port storage system includes a dynamo-electric machine with integral rotor inertia forming a primary energy storage system. The dynamo-electric machine has a primary stator winding configured to accept multiple AC input power sources, and has at least two secondary stator windings configured to deliver electric power to multiple loads at different power, frequency and voltage levels. A secondary energy storage system is coupled to the primary energy storage system, and is configured to convert its stored energy to electric power. The dynamo-electric machine is configured to enhance and buffer the secondary energy storage system, and is configured to improve the conversion of the stored energy to electric power. The system may include a step-up transformer responsively coupled to one of the secondary stator windings.
