Capacitors: Battery of the Future
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences
City:Windsor, ON
School:F.J. Brennan High School
Abstract:It is a commonly held opinion that capacitors discharge too rapidly to ever become a useful energy source. I have designed a device that allows for steady discharge of a capacitor so it can power various electronic devices for several hours. Such a battery can be recharged in minutes.
