KEMET K-SIM is a parameter simulation tool to help aid design engineers in analyzing the performance of these capacitors over frequency, temperature, ripple, and DC bias conditions.
BETA: This calculator is used to calculate the estimated life of power film capacitors. This first in the industry tool considers voltage, temperature, and humidity to calculate the life expectancy of film capacitors.
This calculator can be used to calculate power dissipation due to non-idealities in the inductor core material. The core loss can be used to calculate total power dissipation and subsequent temperature rise.
Based on your application’s conditions, this tool can calculate the life for a specific KEMET Aluminum Electrolytic capacitor.
This calculator software is intended to follow the calculations spelled out in this handbook for the specific part types that KEMET manufactures.
