Ultra power density ultracapacitor energy storage device

It is all about a high dielectric constant and low voltage charging

Example design parameters:

The energy stored in the Capacitor: E=½ CV where C is the capacitance (F) and V is the charging voltage.

  • Energy needed: 85 kWh
  • Charging voltage V=600
  • Relative permittivity k=16 million (This is the highest value for dielectric constant reported in open literature. In comparison, EEStor uses material with a dielectric constant of 18,000 for their solid-state battery development.
  • Area of a single layer capacitor A=20cm x 20 cm=400 cm2
  • Thickness of the dielectric t=20 x10

For a unit of 85 kWh the total capacitance (called geometrical capacitance) is:

  • C= 2E/V = 2 x 85 000 x 3600/(600) =1,700 F

Capacitance ONE layer (=Ԑ0*kA/t)

0.2832 F/layer

Energy density:

5,900 Wh/lit

Specific Energy Density:

1,734 Wh/kg

Gravimetric Power Density | frequency is 1

7,780 W/kg

Total weight energy storage device (only stacked layers | housing not included)

Discharging depends on load:

There are many advantages of solid state devices over Li-Ion batteries (no environmental pollution, millions of charging and discharging cycles and very fast charging to mention a few) the only disadvantage of super capacitor is the inability to hold the steady voltage during the discharging cycle under load.

The voltage in super capacitor will decrease steadily and the rate of voltage decrease depends on the load.

Higher loads will cause the voltage to drop faster. The solution to this problem is to fabricate higher power unit with high energy density.

With such high power density (high kWh/kg) super capacitors, it would be possible to put on board several units and discharge one unit after another until the voltage in each unit drops below a certain value.

In this way it will be possible to keep the voltage high during the entire life of the battery set. This can easily be done using today’s modern electronics.

Sialon Ceramics Ltd.

Sialon Ceramics Ltd has been formed with the goal of ultrasonically developing environmentally friendly energy storage devices or ‘batteries’. Now 60% developed, these devices would revolutionize the way electric energy is stored and transported. With just 4 minutes of charging, an electric vehicle using our battery would be able to drive for up to 480 kilometers  far exceeding present slow charging Li-Ion batteries.
