Capacitors

Capacitors

A capacitor or condenser is a passive electronic component consisting of a pair of conductors separated by a dielectric (insulator). When a potential difference (voltage) exists across the conductors, an electric field is present in the dielectric. This field stores energy and produces a mechanical force between the conductors. The effect is greatest when there is a narrow separation between large areas of conductors, hence capacitor conductors are often called plates. This book reviews...

Electrical Power Capacitors

Electrical Power Capacitors

Capacitors are devises which can store electric charge. They are used in tuned circuits, timing circuits, filters, amplifier circuits. And are used for power factor correction for starting single phase motors.Electrical Power Capacitors: design and manufacture, describes the raw materials used in the manufacture of capacitors and evaluates them. Written by an engineer who has more than 30 years of experience, the book deals with the aspects of construction and design of capacitor units. Some...

The Capacitor Handbook

The Capacitor Handbook

A long and varied experience in many areas of electronic circuit design has convinced me that capacitors are the most misunderstood and misused electronic component. This book provides practical guidance in the understanding, construction, use, and application of capacitors. Theory, combined with circuit application advice, will help to under stand what goes on in each component and in the final design. All chapters are arranged with the theory of the dielectric type discussed first, followed...

Electrochemical Capacitors and Hybrid Power Batteries 2008

Electrochemical Capacitors and Hybrid Power Batteries 2008

Electrochemical capacitors in part or in whole on the electrical double later at electrode interfaces have found application in a variety of energy storage applications. Paper for the symposium are solicited that cover all fundamental and practical aspects of ultracapacitors, supercapacitors, and similar electrochemical energy conversion devices, including: 1) double layer and/or pseudo-capacitance of carbons, conducting polymers, and advanced inorganic materials, 2) synthesis and...

Power Quality in Power Systems and Electrical Machines

Power Quality in Power Systems and Electrical Machines

Power Quality in Power Systems and Electrical Machines, Second Edition helps readers understand the causes and effects of power quality problems and provides techniques to mitigate these problems. Power quality is a measure of deviations in supply systems and their components, and affects all connected electrical and electronic equipment, including computers, TV monitors, and lighting. In this book analytical and measuring techniques are applied to power quality problems as they occur in...

Smart supercapacitor fiber with shape memory

Wearing your mobile phone display on your jacket sleeve or an EKG probe in your sports kit are not off in some distant imagined future. Wearable "electronic textiles" are on the way. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Chinese researchers have now introduced ...

Toyota shows off 'Back to the Future' Mirai and Tacoma

The hydrogen fuel cell -powered Mirai pays homage to the movies with a flux capacitor, gull-wing doors, a stainless steel finish and a time-traveling destination on the heads-up display. The Tacoma is in black and has the classic "TOYOTA" logo across the ...

Inside the Lab That Pushes Supergrid Circuit Breakers to the Limit

Photo: KEMA Laboratories Stress Test: Inside KEMA Labs, a circuit breaker (blue cylinder) is prepared for a test. Two capacitor banks (tall foreground structures) provide the ultrahigh voltage required. In UHV transmission systems, the most crucial piece ...
