EEVblog 1486 – What you DIDN’T KNOW About Film Capacitor FAILURES!

You might believe you understand exactly how movie capacitors deteriorate and also fall short in capacitance over time – self-healing due to rises? INCORRECT!
Capacitor specialist and also AVX Fellow Ron Demcko verifies what’s truly taking place after a teardown of some fallen short as well as one great polypropylene X course capacitor.
