Capacitor is a component which has the ability or “capacity” to store energy in the form of an electrical charge producing a potential difference (Static Voltage) across its plates, much like a small rechargeable battery. In a way, a capacitor is a little like a battery. Although they work in completely different ways, they both store electrical energy. However, a capacitor is much simpler than a battery. It is called so because it has the “capacity” to store energy. We at robotechbd.com provide the best quality capacitors.
Capacitors can be manufactured to serve any purpose, from the smallest used in calculators, to an ultra capacitor that can power a commuter bus.
Types of Capacitors and their uses:
Here are some of the various types of capacitors and how they are used.
Air: Often used in radio tuning circuits
Mylar: Most commonly used for timer circuits like clocks, alarms and counters
Glass: Good for high-voltage applications
Ceramic: Used for high frequency purposes like antennas, X-ray and MRI machines
Super capacitor: Powers electric and hybrid cars Inside a capacitor, the terminals connect to two metal plates separated by a non-conducting substance, or dielectric.
In theory, the dielectric can be any non-conductive substance. However, for practical applications, specific materials are used that best suit the capacitor’s function. Mica, ceramic, cellulose, porcelain, Mylar, Teflon and even air are some of the non-conductive materials used. The dielectric dictates what kind of capacitor it is and for what it is best suited. Depending on the size and type of dielectric, some are better for high-frequency uses, while some are better for high-voltage applications.
The flow of electrons onto the plates is known as the capacitors Charging Current which continues to flow until the voltage across both plates (and hence the capacitor) is equal to the applied voltage Vc. At this point the capacitor is said to be “fully charged” with electrons.
The strength or rate of this charging current is at its maximum value when the plates are fully discharged (initial condition) and slowly reduces in value to zero as the plates charge up to a potential difference across the capacitors plates equal to the source voltage.
