4 Please note the following recommendations when using capacitors: 1. When using Electrolytic capacitors on DC applications, polarization is required as well as the confirmation of the polarity of the course. Otherwise, the circuit life may be shortened or the capacitor may be damaged by the insertion on reverse polarity. Use non-polar capacitors on those circuits with occasionally reverse polarity or unknown polarity. Also note that do not use electrolytic capacitors for AC applications. 2. Do not apply a voltage exceeding the capacitor rated voltage, that will cause the capacitor be...

5 The Material and Structure of Electrolytic Capacitors Electrolytic Capacitor is a simple module. It simply contains an insulator between relative conductors in an electrode. The major internal raw material contains an element constructed by an separator paper wrap around the anode foil and cathode foil, which is then impregnated with the electrolyte, inserted into an aluminum case and sealed. Production Processes 1. Etching: The process to increase surface area of aluminum foil by using chemical erosion or chemical corrosion method is called Etching. Normally chemical corrosion method...

7 Capacitance (ESC) The capacitive component of the equivalent series circuit (equivalent series capacitance ESC) is determined by applying an alternate voltage of 0.5V at a frequency of 120 Hz. • Temperature Dependence of the Capacitance The capacitance of an electrolytic capacitor depends on the temperature. With decreasing temperature, the viscosity of the electrolyte increases and reduces its conductivity which leads to the capacitance decrease. Furthermore temperature drifts cause armature dilatation and therefore capacitance changes (up to 20%, depending on the series considered, from...

8 Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) The equivalent series resistance is the resistive component of the equivalent series circuit. The ESR value depends on frequency and temperature and is related to the tan ä by the following equation: The tolerance limits of the rated capacitance must be taken into account when calculating this value. The resistance of the electrolyte decreases strongly with increasing temperature. Impedance (Z) The impedance of an electrolytic capacitor results from below circuit formed by the following individual equivalent series components. Co = Aluminum oxide...

9 The impedance as a function of frequency (sinusoidal waveform) for different temperature values can be represented as follows (typical values): Re is the most temperature dependant component of electrolytic capacitor equivalent circuit. The electrolyte resistivity will decrease when the temperature rises. In order to obtain a low impedance value in all temperature range. Re must be as little as possible, but too low Re values means a very aggressive electrolyte and a shorter life of the electrolytic capacitor at the high temperatures. A compromise must be reached. Leakage Current (L.C.)...
