Introduction to Capacitors eBook

Download PDF:

Capacitors are electronic components that store, filter and regulate electrical energy and current flow and are one of the essential passive components used in circuit boards. Capacitors are primarily used for storing electrical charges, conducting alternating current (AC), and blocking or separating different voltages levels of direct current (DC) source.

While capacitors are one type of component, there are many types of capacitors that are differentiated by the materials used in construction, each providing unique features and benefits. Understanding basic capacitor construction and how different materials can affect their characteristics will aid in choosing the proper capacitor for a given application.
