Keep the Balance-Balancing of Supercapacitors

In order to reach higher operating voltages, it is necessary to build a cascade of serial-connected Supercapacitor cells. Due to production or aging-related variations in capacitance and insulation resistance the voltage drop over individual capacitors may exceed the rated voltage limit. Thus, a balancing system is required to avoid accelerated aging of the capacitor cell. In this whitepaper, the effect of unequal voltage division in cascades is explained.
