Welcome to the internet site from Garmanage
Roland Gallay, experienced capacitor expert, in the domain of film foiled capacitors, metallized film capacitors, supercapacitors (EDLC, ultracapacitors) has more than 60 publications and 27 years of experience in the domain, in particular as WW R&D director by Maxwell Technologies. Starting September 1st 2010, he takes mandate to help you to size, design, develop and industrialize capacitors, supercapacitors and batteries with the highest performances on the market. The supercapacitor expertise includes knowledge on carbon, electrode, cell and module production processes.
Within a FMEA process, Garmanage can help manufacturers to improve the capacitor design or the manufacturing processes, or customers to find and analyze the failure modes and causes of capacitor failures (such as corrosion, corona, leakage, melting, fire, explosion, ....)
The site contains a tool to perform the calculation of the size of a storage system taking into account the derating due to temperature and voltage solicitations. A description of the supercapacitor technology, including design and properties is proposed in the energy storage section.
