Capacitor Tutorials

Capacitor and the Alternating Current

Capacitor and the Alternating Current. Unlike the behavior of a capacitor in direct current (DC), in the alternating current (AC) the current passes more easily through a capacitor.

What is a Capacitor?

Capacitors are devices made of two metal plates separated by an insulator or dielectric. Charge, Voltage and Capacitance Relationship

Electrolytic Capacitor

The Electrolytic Capacitor has been developed to achieve large capacities in small physical dimensions. To achieve this large capacity, a special dielectric is used.

Capacitor Charging Process (RC circuit)

Capacitor charging process. Capacitor charging process shows the variation of voltage and current in the capacitor over time, when it is connected to a DC voltage source
