Information  at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • A super capacitor is basically two parallel conducting plates separated by an insulating material known as a dielectric. The value of the capacitor is directly proportional to the area of the plates and inversely proportional to the thickness of the dielectric. Manufacturers building “super” capacitors achieve higher levels of capacitance while minimizing size by using a porous carbon material for the plates to maximize the surface area and a molecularly thin electrolyte as the dielectric to minimize the distance between the plates.
  • Some of the most attractive features in wireless and portable devices today demand high levels of current for very short durations
  • “super” capacitors offer high levels of capacitance in a relatively small case size.
  • Working with the battery and a DC/DC converter, a super capacitor discharges its power during peak loads and recharges between peaks, providing the power needed to operate systems from battery operated hosts.
  • By using a super capacitor (SC), designers can deliver the high current levels needed for these short duration events and then recharge from the battery between events. By reducing the current drawn from the battery, this architecture offers users improved talk time and longer battery life. It also allows the designer to reduce the system footprint by
    optimally sizing the battery and power circuitry to cover just the average power consumption instead of peak levels
  • A super capacitor can be used to store the required current and deliver it quickly without draining the main battery.
  • Super capacitors recharge in seconds with >500k cycles and store energy in an electrostatic field rather than a chemical state like a battery
  • Based on the energy storage mechanism the Super capacitors can be classified into three basic types ; electrostatic double layer
    capacitor (EDLC), electrochemical pseudocapacitor and hybrid capacitors
  • Common types categorized by rated voltage, type, capacitance, packaging type and case size / dimension. The most common values for capacitance are 0.22 F, 0.47 F and 1 F. super capacitors with capacitance up to 400 F are available. The rated voltage can be between 2.3 V and 11 V, with the most common capacitors having a rated voltage of 5.5 V.
  • The supercapacitor market is estimated to register a CAGR of around 35.4% for the period 2015-2020 and is projected to reach around $4.2 billion by 2020. Consumer electronics and automotive segment will be the highest revenue generating segments during this period according to market research firms
  • Electric Vehicles, whose shipments are estimated to reach 6.3 million units by 2022, is a huge opportunity for the super capacitor
  • Important market segments are Industrial Automation Products, Consumer Electronics Products, Power & Energy Products and
    Transportation Products
  • In the near future, Super capacitors would make it possible to recharge a mobile phone or laptop in just a few seconds. They would also allow electric cars to travel similar
    distances as petrol cars, but without the need to stop for lengthy recharging breaks of typically six to eight hours. Instead, they would recharge fully in the time it takes to fill
    a regular car with petrol. An electric car could travel from New York to Washington, D.C., without the need to recharge — but when it did recharge for this operation to take just a few minutes to perform
