The project will last until 2026 and its goal is to create a new technology of supercapacitors with record energy and capacity.
Supercapacitors are used in engine start boosters, portable devices, hybrid power supplies and other autonomous energy facilities.
The main advantages of supercapacitors are the ability to charge quickly, high specific power and a resource that is 1000 times higher than that of batteries.
As part of the FPI advance project, TSTU scientists have already created models of supercapacitors with a specific energy of more than 8.4 Wh/kg and a useful specific power of up to 40.0 kW/kg. This exceeds the performance of analogues on the market. These indicators were achieved thanks to the creation of new materials, technologies and optimization of the design of devices.
