Supercapacitors in a rapid heat transfer application


To demonstrate the value of high discharge current capability of a supercapacitor, a discussion on the new supercapacitor-assisted temperature modification apparatus (SCATMA) technique is introduced in this chapter. Some early experimental data and design concepts are discussed.

8.1 Introduction

State-of-the-art supercapacitors (SCs) come in all sizes from about fractional farads to over 5000 F in single-cell devices. For smaller value devices their equivalent series resistance (ESR) values range from about 25 to 100 mΩ. The larger capacitance devices from about 300 to 5000 F have much lower ESR values such as ...
