In recent years, electrical double layer capacitor (EDLCs) has become one of the most popular energy storage devices. This can be attributed to its high capacity, long life cycle and fast charge/discharge rates. However, it has some drawbacks – mainly it stores less amount of energy than batteries. Hence, there is a need to optimize the EDLC to increase its capacity and decrease its equivalent series resistance (ESR), resulting in a supercapacitor that is able to charge quickly and will hold a large amount of energy for a long time.
