    Hello ,
    I need to calculate lifetime of a electrolytic capacitor. I have refered formulas based on temperature,ESR,Voltage,shelf life etc. How to cross verify it. Any idea to calculate the lifetime .

    Thanks & Regards

    Best answer ever.
    I have spent days studying manufacturers descriptions (some years ago) and this is the best asset I have ever seen. I can now clear several brochures out of my book shelf.

    That is a really elegant report on such an arcane topic. It's a great example of how an engineer should - but sadly rarely does - approach a topic. Breadth and depth.
