This report discusses the preliminary research conducted and basic explanation of the chosen topic, which is "On the Performance of Conventional Supercapacitor for Storage Devices in Solar Power Systems Application". As technology advance with time, batteries still remain as one of the most important energy storage devices in the world. Batteries are widely used in electrical energy storage because it is the best energy storage devices available today. However, batteries have limitations that need to be improved such as high voltage drop, short life cycle, high discharge rate, high equivalent series resistance (ESR) and their adverse contribution to environmental issues. The objective of this project is to integrate supercapacitor (SC) in the design of equivalent circuit model that improve storing performance for stands alone solar power systems application by reducing the voltage drop of the battery. From the circuit model, the voltage drop of the battery and discharge rate of supercapacitor are the parameters to be investigated. The circuit model identification is done by conducting experiments in the laboratory to collect all possible data. The equivalent circuit of solar supercapacitor (SSC) is expected to flatter the voltage drop by the extended discharging time thus improving storage capacity of the battery. Study and research claimed that due to a large value of capacitance, the supercapacitor can be used as energy storage device in renewable energy source application for which the project concern on solar power systems.
