Calculating the Current Through a Bank of Capacitors

Many times, different technologies of capacitors are needed to accomplish different tasks at the same point in a circuit. One of the most common combinations is Aluminum Electrolytic and Film capacitors. The Aluminum Electrolytic capacitors handle the bulk of the capacitance while the film capacitors help take some of the current from the Aluminum Electrolytics, all while filtering the higher frequencies that the Aluminum Electrolytics cannot.
