Fast charging for supercapacitor banks

This project is concerned with rapid charging of supercapacitors as an alternative energy source to Li-Ion for portable appliacance that require high load current. The charger must operate from the AC mains and be limited only by the supply network. Fully integrated converters new algorithms for control and regulation are being designed in MV CMOS technology that allow direct connectio to the AC mains.
