Hello Tesla world!
I know this has been debated in previous posts. But!
(Also, I'm a newbie in this field.)
Could it be possible to have a Charging Station System built around a "MEGA Capacitor" or "MEGA bank of Capacitors" that would act as buffers? So that the charging would be done from this "MEGA Capacitor" to the car or multiple cars at a time in no time and not from the network?
Well, I came with this idea when thinking about how to charge very fast a capacitor. Oh, I forgot to tell about the capacitor or a mixture between a battery and a capacitor acting as the car's reservoir.
When other posts here talked about the super/ultra capacitors for EVs the problem of super charging emerged. One said that you would need a super charger with hundreds of MW in order to charge very fast. Well, I thought of another ultra capacitor that will charge the car's capacitor very fast. Am I wrong?
Is this possible? What will be the challenges?
