Abstract

High dielectric polymer nanocomposites are promising candidates for energy storage applications. The main criteria of focus are high dielectric breakdown strength, high dielectric constant and low dielectric loss. In this study, we investigate the effect of the addition of TiO2 particles to PVDF matrix on the dielectric constant, breakdown and energy density of the system. The dispersion of the particles is qualified by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The morphology of the composites is characterized by polarized light microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The dielectric properties are measured by a Novocontrol system with an Alpha analyzer. Finally, the breakdown measurements are carried out by a QuadTech hipot tester.
