  • Published 2012 in IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications


Aluminum electrolytic capacitors are standard components in power electronic equipment. Their performance and lifetime strongly depend on their operation temperature. Hence, controlling their temperature is essential for the reliable operation of the equipment. For standard snap-in type capacitors, which are common in low-power converters (<; ~20 kW… (More)
