What are Capacitors?

A capacitor is a device that stores electrical energy in an electric field. It is a passive electronic component with two terminals. The effect of a capacitor is known as capacitance.

What should I look for when buying a capacitor?

Dielectric Type – A major key on how to buy capacitors is checking the dielectric type. The dielectric determines the size, package, frequency range, and other electrical properties.

The type of material affects the function of the capacitor, as different types of ceramic have different properties and performance levels.

How long should a capacitor last?

Usually, a capacitor is designed to last somewhere between 10-20 years, but a lot of different things play a role in the lifespan of them, such as we discussed earlier,

like exposure to heat, if the capacitor is undersized, or even if it was built with the wrong parts, a number of things play into how long they will

What causes a capacitor to fail?

Along with batteries, capacitors are the UPS components most prone to failure. Capacitors age over time, losing the ability to perform their job.

The electrolyte, paper, and aluminum foil inside the capacitor degrade physically and chemically.
