6 What is a Supercapacitor?
Principles: Capacitance is proportional to the surface area of the carbon (A), divided by the charge separation distance (d) C α A / d So as Surface Area , and Charge Distance , Capacitance  C = I * dt / dV ESR = dV / I Energy stored = ½CV2 +ve -ve Nanoporous carbon: Large surface area - + Electrolyte: Ions in a solvent Separation distance: Solid-liquid interface Separator: Semi-permeable membrane Electrode: Aluminum foil Electrical Model: Electric Double Layer Capacitor

7 What Do They Do? The Power Gap
Capacitors Capacitor replacements Battery complements Supercapacitors fill “the power gap” between capacitors & batteries Battery replacements Supercapacitors are energy storage devices. They store far more energy than conventional capacitors, are far more powerful than batteries & can be charged & discharged far more quickly & far more often Batteries In some applications, paired with an energy harvester, fast charger or inductive charger, they can completely remove the need for a battery
