This article discusses the thermal modeling of
supercapacitor cells based on the technology of activated
carbon and organic electrolyte. The model developed can
determine the evolutions of temperatures inside and on the
surface of supercapacitors. The supercapacitor used for the
model validation was made with 4 thermocouples placed inside.
These thermocouples measure the temperature at 4 different
points inside the supercapacitor. The results from the
simulation show a satisfactory correlation with the
experimental ones. The model developed is simple enough to
be implemented in different simulation programs and thermal
management systems for hybrid electric vehicles. The
simulation results or the thermal model can be used to find out
if a cooling/heating system is necessary for the use of
supercapacitor in order to improve its efficiency.
