Abstract
CAPACITOR TECHNOLOGY IS A MAJOR DRIVER FOR THE SIZE AND COST OF MANY SPACE POWER CONDITIONING SYSTEMS. CURRENT TECHNOLOGY FOR HIGH VOLTAGE (>100V), HIGH FREQUENCY (HIGH REP RATE) CAPACITORS IS LIMITED TO AN ENERGY DENSITY LESS THAN 7500 J/M3. WE ARE PROPOSIING A REVOLUTIONARY CAPACITOR TECHNOLOGY WHICH PROMISES TO INCREASE CAPACITOR ENERGY DENSITIES BY AFACTOR OF MORE THAN 100. IN MANY APPLICATIONS, THIS WILL GREATLY REDUCE THE SIZE, WEIGHT, AND COST OF THE POWER CONDITIONING EQUIPMENT. THE PROPOSED TECHNOLOGY CAN OPERATE AT TEMPERATURES GREATER THAN 2000 C DEGREE, OPERATE IN HIGH TOLERANT. THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WILL DEMONTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE TECHNOLOGY WITH A SMALL SCALE EXPERIMENTAL DEMONTRATION. WE WILL ALSO DEVELOP A FIRST ORDER THEORETICAL MODEL OF THE DEVICE.
