Supercapacitor technology has been available commercially for over the past decade. They can store more energy than conventional capacitors and are available in various sizes. They can be charged and discharged faster than batteries. Because of so many advantages such as high power cycling capacity, low maintenance and long service life, wide operating temperature and lowest internal Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR), supercapacitors are used for an unlimited number of applications now-a-days. There is a strong need to gain a better understanding of supercapacitors when used in electric utility applications.
