Maximum Battery Capacity

Scroll Prev Top Next More


The maximum capacity (or theoretical capacity) of a Storage Component is the total amount of energy it contains when fully charged. It is not possible to extract all this energy at any finite discharge current (it would take an infinite amount of time to extract it all), so Storage Component sizes are not typically given in terms of maximum capacity. HOMER calculates the maximum capacity for use in the kinetic storage model.
