Elbit Energy - Super Capacitor Solution

Innovative technology for energy storage solutions

As the world moves towards alternative environmental friendly solutions, suitable energy storage technologies have become a high priority issue. Moreover, resource-efficient and reliable solutions are increasingly being sought after. To meet these demands, energy storage devices must be reliable and efficient, provide a rapid charge and discharge cycle, and utilize hazard-free components. Supercapacitors, also known as electrochemical double-layer capacitors (EDLC), or ultracapacitors, have shown promising potential in fulfilling the requirements for energy storage and high power Solutions delivery.Given the lack of high-power solutions in both civil and military markets, Elbit Systems’ strategy to engage this need was directed towards the development of advanced energy-storage solutions with high power density for its core product lines.

Elbit Energy – Unique Technology

Elbit Energy’s innovation and uniqueness lies in both structure and materials

Innovative Structure:

The specifics of the SC construction depend upon the application and use of the device, and their assembly in modules varies from product to product. In general, Elbit’s Energy supercapacitors consist of a positive and a negative electrode, a separator between them, conductive films serving as current collectors, and the aqueous (alkaline) electrolyte. Elbit Energy’s supercapacitors can be customized and offered in a full range of sizes, based on the intended application. Among the important factors that should be taken into consideration, In order to size the system correctly, are the operating voltage and temperature ranges of the application, the average current, the peak current or power, and the run time required for the application.

Cutting Edge Materials:

While maintaining low production costs, Elbit Energy has developed a process to improve off-the-shelf materials, enhancing their performance, with minimum labor and cost. The improvement process enables the ESL aqueous SC to close the gap between the organic energy density and the aqueous energy density.
