A capacitor is used to store energy as an electric charge, similar in operation to a battery but they are able to release that electrical charge much faster. The amount of electrical energy it is able to store is known as capacitance which is measured in Farads. Internally they comprise of 2 conductive plates which are separated by a dielectric which is a form of insulator.
Capacitors can be found in countless devices and products, from power factor correction, frequency drives, lighting circuits, motor control and electric vehicles to power and distribution systems that support industrial installations. Capacitors play an important role in power grids and electrical networks. They are designed to compensate reactive power in the electrical network and increase the power factor, resulting in a more stable grid with increased transmission capacity and reduced losses.
