ENHANCED PHYSICS-BASED REDUCED-ORDER MODEL OF NON-FARADAIC ELECTRICAL DOUBLE-LAYER CAPACITOR DYNAMICS
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis builds upon the work of Dr. Al Mundy and furthers the development of physicsbased reduced-order models of electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs), by extending the operating range over which the models are accurate and by adding a thermal model. Electrical power management systems are often required either to sink or source large currents, which over the years has led to many solutions. Often the solution implemented for sinking is application of shunting resistors, which absorb the energy and then dissipate it as heat. Such a method wastes the entirety of the shunted energy. ...
