This paper presents a new type of capacitor and deals with a hybrid approach where the advantages of two systems, dielectric capacitors and the ultracapacitor are combined. The objective is to increase the capacitance and the energy storage capability, while or at least preserving or decreasing the volume of the passive components. In this aim, the surface area and structural properties of ultracapacitor electrodes and the high dielectric strength of a polymer material are associated. The surface roughness of the carbonbased electrodes, namely (activated carbon—AC, and carbon nanotubes—CNTs), has a good impact on the capacitance. However, the surface roughness also depends on the composition of carbonaceous materials and so does the capacitance. Moreover, the choice of the dielectric material is the key parameter. The better the impregnation of the roughness is, the better is the increase of the capacitance. Since the final objective is to improve the electrical energy stored by the capacitor, the effect of surface roughness on the breakdown voltage is also evaluated.
