Capacitors are circuit elements used in low voltage systems. They enable correcting the power factor. They consist of an insulator material between two conductive plates. They are generally used for reactive power control, data protection, frequency generation, AC/DC transformation and filtering purposes. They transfer alternating current instead of direct current.
The capacitors have a simple operating principle. They hold and store the electric load when there is voltage. Although they are similar to batteries in terms of storage function, there are also differences. The most important difference is how the electricity is stored and their charge/discharge speeds. When necessary, capacitors enable the usage of the energy stored as the electric field.
The main factor to consider in the selection of these elements also known as condensers is the power, capacity, voltage values, current value and the insulator material. In addition to that, we recommend safety, cooling and insulation properties in Tense’s various power capacity models.
