What is a capacitor?
Aug. 21, 2020

A capacitor is composed of two conductors that are close to each other with a layer of insulating medium between them. This constitutes a capacitor. When a voltage is applied between the two plates of the capacitor, the capacitor will store charge. The capacitance of a capacitor is numerically equal to the ratio of the amount of charge on one conductive plate to the voltage between the two plates.

Capacitors play an important role in coordination, bypass, filtering, and other circuits. In DC circuits, capacitors are equivalent to open circuits. Capacitors are components that can store charges and are one of the most commonly used electronic components. In an AC circuit, because the direction of the current changes in a certain relationship with time, and the process of capacitor charging and discharging has time, at this time, a changing electric field is formed between the plates, and this electric field also changes with time. , In fact, the current passes between the capacitors in the form of an electric field.

With the rapid development of electronic information technology, the update speed of digital electronic products is getting faster and faster. The production and sales of consumer electronic products such as flat-panel TVs (LCD and PDP), notebook computers, digital cameras, and other products continue to grow, driving The growth of the capacitor industry.
