IntroductionSuper-capacitors are energy storage devices similar to secondary batteries. Unlike batteries, which use chemical reactions to store energy, super-capacitors generally store energy through the physical separation of electrical charges.
Electrochemical Techniques for
Knowing the exact specifications when testing batteries.
This application note is Part of 2 describing electrochemical techniques for energy-storage devices. It explains Gamry’s PWR800 measurement software and describes techniques to investigate electrochemical capacitors.
IntroductionPart 1 - "CV, EIS and Leakage Current" - of this series of notes discusses basic theory of capacitors and describes several techniques to investigate electrochemical capacitors.
