Abstract:
Nanodielectric materials become one of the new materials to play a sole role in sustainable and clean energy production, energy transportation, energy storage, and end usage in terms of energy storage capabilities due to the trade-off between dielectric constant, dielectric loss and voltage breakdown. Based on our recent research articles, BT/Parylene and BT/P(VDF-HFP) high energy density nanodielectric composites have been investigated as a function of frequency and also the volume fraction of nanoparticles at room temperature by several theoretical models. The projected models combined with Debye type of dissipation and soft mode theory to obtain more precise frequency dependent dielectric spectrum of BT. Among the others, Lichtnecker model, Maxwell-Wagner model, and modified Kerner model were used to find the frequency dependent nanocomposites dielectric spectrum. A similar model of Wiener upper bound was proposed for the dielectric loss tangent prediction with a wide frequency range. The predicted results are compared with the experimental results and explored the frequency dependent dielectric activities of nanocomposite. This proposed model provides the essential information on dielectric properties of polymer-based BT nanocomposites with a wide frequency range instead of trial-and-error strategy of experiments for the future development of high energy density applications.
