This article types of capacitors with images pdf about commercial discrete capacitors as customary components for use in electronic equipment. Small capacitors are used in electronic devices to couple signals between stages of amplifiers, as components of electric filters and tuned circuits, or as parts of power supply systems to smooth rectified current.
Different types are used depending on required capacitance, working voltage, current handling capacity, and other properties. Nearly all conventional industrial capacitors except some special styles such as “feed-through capacitors”, are constructed as “plate capacitors” even if their electrodes and the dielectric between are wound or rolled. The capacitance is therefore greatest in devices made from materials with a high permittivity, large plate area, and small distance between plates. Schematic of double layer capacitor.
The capacitance value of an electrochemical capacitor is determined by two high-capacity storage principles. The ratio of the storage resulting from each principle can vary greatly, depending on electrode design and electrolyte composition. Pseudocapacitance can increase the capacitance value by as much as an order of magnitude over that of the double-layer by itself. The most important group is the fixed capacitors. Many got their names from the dielectric.
For a systematic classification these characteristics can’t be used, because one of the oldest, the electrolytic capacitor, is named instead by its cathode construction. So the most-used names are simply historical. In addition to the above shown capacitor types, which derived their name from historical development, there are many individual capacitors that have been named based on their application. Often, more than one capacitor family is employed for these applications, e.
