Power Capacitors Fortify HVDC Link Circuits

Employing a dry technology, the company's power capacitor operates in the link circuits of high voltage DC transmission systems. The components offer a typical capacitance range from 4,000 to 5,000 µF with dc-voltage ratings up to 2.8 kVdc. Current handling capacity extends to 450 A. Exhibiting good parasitic coefficients, equivalent series resistance is less than 0.5 milliOhms and series inductance does not exceed 50 nH. According to the company, the capacitors are suitable for supplying isolated loads such as those found on oil drilling platforms. For additional information, call EPCOS INC., Iselin, NJ.
