Flexible polymer dielectric energy storage devices with high energy storage density and high reliability have irreplaceable applications in the field of high energy pulse power technology. At present, most researchers introduce high dielectric inorganic filler phase into polymer matrix to enhance the polarization ability of composite medium and improve its energy storage performance. However, the inorganic filled phase with high doping content will seriously degrade the intrinsic compliance of the polymer film and increase the dielectric loss of the composite medium. Meanwhile, the dielectric mismatch between the matrix and the filler phase leads to the serious electric field distortion and the decrease of the breakdown strength of the interface. Therefore, it is the focus of researchers in the field to explore effective ways to improve the energy storage density of dielectric energy storage devices.
Recently, the research group led by Professor Chi Qingguo, School of Electrical Engineering of Harbin University of Science and Technology developed a multi-functional polymer dielectric composite with high energy storage density, high energy storage efficiency and high thermal conductivity. In this work, the multi-functional inorganic nano-fiber filled phase was designed, and the orientation distribution of the inorganic filled phase was realized by electrostatic spinning technology. While enhancing the interfacial polarization to increase the polarization intensity of the composite medium, the electric field distortion of the interface is effectively alleviated, and the breakdown strength is greatly increased. At the same time, the orientation distribution of the filled phase realizes the anisotropic thermal conductivity of the composite medium, which greatly improves the in-plane thermal conductivity of the composite medium.
The results are published online under the title of Excellent Energy Storage Performance and Thermal Property of Polymer-Based Composite Induced by Multifunctional One-Dimensional Nanofibers Oriented in-Plane Direction in the internationally renowned journal IF=13.12.
