Regards. I would like to know if someone could explain the following terms referring to the capacitor:
1.Leak Resistance.
2.Equivalent Series Resistance.
3.Shunt Resistance.
4.Series Inductance.

What is the purpose of knowing these values.

They are all deviations from ideal behavior. In some contexts they can be ignored, but in others -- not so much, One area in which these deviations from ideality are critical is in the non-linear area of SMPS (Switch Mode Power Supplies).
