A type of method which is used to store energy or save the energy in a special type of device that is called as accumulator, and then this energy is used in the future to perform the operational tasks in the field of sciences such as physics, chemistry and biology etc is referred as energy storage. We can store every form of energy to fulfill our desires in the future such as potential energy, kinetic energy and many other forms. As we know that the process of energy storage is evolved since the time of the formation of the Universe i.e. energy is stored in the sun and stars that is called as solar energy, then this phenomenon of energy storage is adopt by the people of ancient civilization for the sake of their protection.
Types of Energy Storage:
There are lots of types which are used to store energy but there are three main types which are used to store energy for the long term use, theses types are as follows
- Hydrogen cells
- Fuel tanks
An energy storing type that is used to store the energy in the form of hydrogen ions and then generate the power that is really free of environmental hazards to derive the working of different applications is called as hydrogen cell. This type can do the work more affectively as compared to other energy storing devices.
A second type of energy storing device is called as battery, it is that type of device which can generate the power with the help different cells arrangement in a specific manner is called as battery. The cells which are arranged in the battery for working are of two types that is primary cells and secondary cells.
A special type of energy storing device that stores energy in the form of liquid, it is look like box that is filled with the flammable liquid i.e. mostly gasoline that is used by the engine to generate the energy and start the working, such device is called as fuel tank.
Methods of Energy Storage:
There are many methods or ways to store energy, these methods really help us to store energy which is useful in our future to run different kind of systems. Energy storage methods are different in different fields of science such as chemistry, bio or physics etc. we can store energy by different types of methods which are chemically in nature such as energy storage by hydrogen, nitrogen in the liquid form etc. Energy can also store through the different kinds of mechanical methods such as hydraulic accumulator, fly wheel energy storage etc. sometimes energy storage can also done thermally such as ice storage, molten salts, hot bricks etc.
Importance of Energy Storage:
There are lots of aspects which made the energy storage valuable or important for the mankind. Some of them are as follows
- It plays an important part in power leveling.
- It can increase the efficiency of the engine and increase the output.
- It can change the low duty cycles into important ones.
- What is energy management
