QUANTUM MODELING OF CAPACITOR ENERGY DENSITY

Adam G. Tournier

Abstract


Energy storage is necessary to power the technologies that sustain or global society. One of the devices utilized for the creation, storage, and delivery of electrical energy are capacitors. The basic physics of capacitors is discussed. The physical parts of the device are explained, and the separator film, which is the focus of this research, is modeled. By optimizing the polarization of the molecules in the separator film through quantum modeling of the electric displacement of the molecules, the dialectic constant of the material can be optimized. The dielectric constant is directly proportional to the energy stored in the capacitor. Increasing the dielectric constant will proportionally increase the energy stored in the capacitor, and increase the energy density of the device.
