Abstract: In the present investigation, the Nano Composite Gel Polymer Electrolyte (NCGPEs) based on nano fillers ZrO2 , Polyacrylonitrile (PAN), and Ammonium Triflate (NH4CF3SO4 ) doped at various wt% ratios prepared with the help of solution cast technique. The better amorphous nature observed for the 70PAN:30NH4CF3SO4 composition with addition of 1-4 wt% of ZrO2 nano fillers and structural, complexation studies of NCGPEs were confirmed by XRD technique. The micro structural studies and particle size can be revealed by SEM technique. DC Conductivity studies reveal the ionic conductivity performance on effect of temperature and composition wt% of nano powder. The ionic conductivity studies observed for 70PAN:30NH4CF3SO4 with nano powder ZrO2 concentration ranging from 1-4 wt%. The sample containing 3wt% of ZrO2 exhibits the highest conductivity order of 4.20×10-4 S cm-1 at room temperature (303K) and 4.65x 10-3 S cm-1 at 373K. The cell parameters like Open Circuit Voltage, Short Circuit Current, energy density and power density were perfectly determined which were useful to explain electrochemical cell behaviour.
