Applications of Various Nanomaterials to Enhance the Performance of Energy Storage Equipment

Narayanan P., Ganesan J., Kartheeswaran M., Muniyasamy V.



The last decade has witnessed significant developments in the area of nanoparticles and nanofillers on electrical and thermal properties of energy storage systems. Batteries are mainly used in electrical engineering to store the electrical energy. Nanobatteries are fabricated batteries employing technology at the nanoscale, particles that measure less than 100 nanometers these batteries may be nano in size or may use nanotechnology in a macro scale battery. In this paper, different characteristics and types of battery was discussed. Nanotechnology improves the performance of batteries.

Keywords: nanoparticles, battery, electrode, electrolyte, uses of battery in optical
