Capacitors for industrial applications at EAPPC 2016
Capacitors for industrial applications at EAPPC 2016 in Estoril, Portugal
AMS Technologies offers high power film capacitors to meet the most demanding industrial and military applications. If you are going to EAPPC European Pulse Power Conference 2016 from 18th to 22nd September 2016 in Estoril (Portugal) make sure to visit our booth and talk to our power experts.

Based on aluminum film with foil and segmented metallized film the capacitors provide lower heat dissipation and have a longer life compared to other dielectric types. Typical applications include pulse power, induction heating, electrical drives for large transport systems and inverters for renewable energy.
  • Voltage: AC 100 to 25,000 Volts, DC 100 to 200,000 Volts
  • Capacitance: 1 nano-farad to 50,000 microfarads
  • Current: DC to 5000 Amps rms up to 12000 KVAR
  • Physical Size: 0.25 cubic inches to 6 cubic feet
  • Packaging: metal or plastic case
  • Oil or resin filled
  • Air and water-cooled capacitors available for high-current and high frequency applications
The manufacturer, NWL Corporation, is one of the largest manufacturers of film capacitors in North America and a world leader in water-cooled DC link applications.
AC Voltage, Resonant Tank, Harmonic Filtering
Applications where an alternating voltage can be continuously applied across the capacitor. Generally resonant tank circuit applications, commutation and harmonic filtering.
High Energy Storage, Pulse Discharge
Applications where the capacitor would hold voltage for short duration and discharge into load. Damping and ringing voltage generates RMS current.
DC Continuous Voltage, DC Filtering, DC Link
Applications where capacitor remains at a DC voltage for continuous operation. Generally a small percentage of AC voltage ripple super imposed into DC voltage generates RMS current at ripple frequency.
Snubber Protection, Clamping, Commutation
Application where a voltage spike or surge charges capacitor in short duration. Repetitive pulses can generate RMS current in high frequency applications. IGBT mountable options.
