6 © 2014 CAP-XX (AUSTRALIA) PTY LTD What is a Supercapacitor? 6 Electrode: Aluminum foil Nanoporous carbon: Large surface area Separator: Semi-permeable membrane ve -ve Separation distance: Solid-liquid interface 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 = ½CV 2 Electrolyte: Ions in a solvent Electrical Model: Electric Double Layer Capacitor

7 © 2014 CAP-XX (AUSTRALIA) PTY LTD What Do They Do? 7 Supercapacitors fill “the power gap” between capacitors & batteries Batteries Battery replacements Battery complements Capacitor replacements Capacitors The Power Gap 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 In some applications, paired with an energy harvester, fast charger or inductive charger, they can completely remove the need for a battery
