Advanced Supercapacitors for Alternating Current Line Filtering


Advanced Supercapacitors for Alternating Current Line Filtering

Rajib Paul, Mohd. Khalid

Ripples in alternating current circuits are very common in domestic and industrial sectors which must be filtered out to increase the lifetime of electronic devices connected in ac-networked circuits. Supercapacitors (SCs) are comparatively more suitable than aluminum electrode capacitors for ac line filtering due to smaller size and volume with 2-5 order higher specific capacitance. Although different types of SCs have been used so far, the proper combination of higher specific capacitance with excellent filtering efficiency is yet to be realized. Here, various SCs for ac line filtering are discussed and summarized to find ways for advancing available technology.
