  • Most capacitors for external defibrillator applications use metallized polypropylene film with an electrode manufactured to permit high energy density without the risk of dielectric failure. This paper describes an evaluation of capacitors using this film and electrode type that can be used for medical defibrillators or other applications requiring a high voltage pulse capacitor. Methods for increasing energy density and reducing mass such as flat cross section capacitor elements and resin… CONTINUE READING
