Abstract:

The use of composite materials and structures to provide characteristics unattainable directly from the constituent materials is well known. Recently, work has been undertaken to apply this principle to development of dielectric materials for energy storage applications. It is anticipated that this technology will provide materials for use in capacitors with greater energy density, lower loss, and higher breakdown resistance. This report describes the results of an effort to analytically model the net or resultant dielectric behavior of such composite dielectric materials. A theoretical model of the composite dielectric is presented and computer code implementing the model is discussed along with preliminary results for the two-dimensional case.
