Supercapacitors are one of the most popular energy storage solutions due to their long life span and high power density, which contributes to their use in electric vehicle regenerative braking systems. Supercapacitors' main issue is their relatively low energy density, which is the primary challenge that supercapacitors face. Despite ASCs' ability to extend the operable voltage window, the majority of the aqueous ASCs suffer from water decomposition, lowering the maximum operation voltage to around 1. 6 V. Capacitors using aqueous electrolyte are also vulnerable to leakage, causing safety issues. On the other hand, the gel polymer electrolyte, on the other hand, has a higher electrochemical stability in comparison to aqueous ones. For the optimization of the utilization of electrical double layer capacitance of the device, simulated voltammetry is first performed on rGO/Ni 2 and AC half-cells with GPEs to determine the operational voltage window, the former is selected as the positive electrode and the latter as the negative electrode. Charge/discharge curves of the first five and the last five cycles of our ASC's recorded 10,000 cycles are shown, and the closely related voltage-time behavior after the first cycle indicates strong electrochemical reversibility. This ASC system may have improved specific capacitance by inducing excess faradaic reaction of the rGO/Ni 2 electrode.

Object: A supercapacitor is an emerging energy storage technology with capacitances of several orders of magnitude higher than conventional dielectric capacitors, due to the atomically-simple interplanar distance between the electrolyte ions and the electronic charges . Although a preliminary examination showed how such device parameters as electrode width could influence overall supercapacitor results, a physical, concrete information on how the biggest current problem of modern supercapacitor, namely, relatively low energy density, can be addressed, although a preliminary experiment was conducted on how such device parameters as electrode width would influence overall supercapacitor results, was not provided. Our device fabrication process is much simpler than that is shown in the previous work , thus enabling us to produce and test a larger number of prototype devices of varying electrode dimensions ideally. To accurately model the supercapacitor unit, a simple capacitor model was first created to serve as the foundation, then we used capacitor measurements to produce a look-up table based on the capacitor's capacitance-voltage curve [4-6]. Significance: Renewable energy sources that are currently available only supply just a small amount of the country's electricity needs. This is mainly due to a major challenge in improving the solar energy conversion efficiency while still keeping the affordable price . High energy density supercapacitors developed in this research will act as the next-generation energy storage device, which would greatly surpass existing energy harvesting or conversion techniques by dealing with the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources. "What is U. S. electricity generation by electricity source?" says US EIA, "What is US electricity generation by energy source?".
