Rated Capacitance CR: The designed capacitance value, usually marked on the capacitor.   Capacitance Tolerance : Admitted capacitance deviation from the rated capacitance at 20°C   Rated Voltage UR:  The maximum direct voltage or the maximum rms alternating voltage or the peak value of a pulse voltage which may be continuously applied to a capacitor […]

Normally, values higher than the rated voltage may cause a breakdown of the capacitor dielectric and damage the capacitor. Metallized capacitors have self-healing properties and the application of voltages higher than rated voltage will not cause an immediate short circuit. But the insulation resistance will drop with the charge time goes on, the leak current […]

What is capacitor Capacitors are components that have the ability to store electrical energy. This energy is stored in an electrostatic field which is created by electrical charges accumulating on conducting plates placed across an electrical potential and separated by an insulating medium. Capacitance as a value is dependent upon the distance between the conducting […]
