Theoretical and Practical Aspects of Energy Storage and Compression
The theoretical and experimental aspects of energy storage and compression are reviewed. The role of complementary energy modes combined with nonlinearities in energy compression is described. The need for “coherent nonlinearity” for efficient compression is emphasized. Various fundamental methods for compressions are described. Quantum mechanical limitations are discussed. Energy storage is reviewed from a theoretical and practical point of view with emphasis on new approaches.
