Electrochemical Capacitors or 'Ultracapacitors' have developed over the past few years as a new type of capacitor, whose main function is energy storage comparable to batteries. Currently being extensively used in electronic circuits, automobiles, grid energy storage, UPS, battery backup, and other new applications, ultracapacitors are set to change the way we perceive and use energy storage devices.
This book provides a well-rounded account of this exciting technology covering all the aspects: from the basics of physics to the manufacturing processes. Focusing on the details of application in various fields, the book also provides rare insights on things to come. This book will serve as a ready reference for the engineering fraternity,students, researchers and all users of ultracapacitors.
