A supercapacitor is a device that stores and releases electricity, much like a battery. Supercapacitors, however, store electricity in a static state as opposed to storing energy in the form of molecules, which makes them superior at quickly charging and discharging energy. Instead of keeping electricity “locked up” through chemical reactions, capacitors store electricity in a static state.
Two conducting plates, known as electrodes, are located inside of a capacitor, separated from one another by an insulating substance called a dielectric. When these two plates, one of which is positive and the other of which is negative, are connected to an electric circuit, the electrical field they produce polarises the atoms in the dielectric so that the positive atoms rest on the side of the negative plate and the negative atoms rest on the side of the positive plate, producing a charge.
Overcapacitors have an almost infinite cycle life and quick charge and discharge rates. They are therefore perfect options for regenerative braking systems and for times of sudden acceleration. The lifespan of the primary EV battery can be increased while also enhancing driving performance by reducing the load on it.
Outside of the car, there is an obvious need to upgrade the infrastructure of the charging network and implement a smart charging strategy to help control energy usage.
Supercapacitors and batteries can be used in combination for a variety of purposes, but they may be especially useful in solar and wind farm applications where the amount of energy available is erratic. The supercapacitors make it possible for the system to gather energy more quickly and effectively. They also lessen the strain placed on the batteries, extending their lifetime and lowering costs.
The Global EV Supercapacitor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The first-ever 3000F high power supercapacitors were created by GODI India, a lithium-ion cell manufacturer, for use in electric car and renewable energy storage system applications. The super capacitors have been produced by the corporation. In EV and ESS applications, the integration of its supercapacitors and battery packs would increase battery life by multiples.
The first Indian company to receive BIS approval to market lithium-ion cells built with domestically developed technology was GODI India. “GODI India uses water-based electrode manufacturing to produce carbon-carbon supercapacitors that are both affordable and made from plants.
We provide several supercapacitor products with temperatures up to 3000F. We are now working on high-voltage lithium-ion capacitor development. In order to replace lead-acid batteries in a variety of applications, we are also developing hybrid capacitors with better energy densities.
Power-smoothing, pitch-control, start-stop, regenerative braking, smart-grid, active heave correction, and specialised UPS applications all use supercapacitors. A variety of supercapacitor products have been created by GODI India. They intend to localise the whole supply chain for the production of supercapacitors in the upcoming year and are eager to produce specially tailored supercapacitor products in accordance with the needs of strategic market segments.
