Hi, can anyone explain me how a capacitor stores charge when used in ac circuits
The Capacitor Charges and discharges in AC very quickly.Hi, can anyone explain me how a capacitor stores charge when used in ac circuits
Where does this "opposing current" come from?Generally, in circuits with DC source ,when the charge flow through the capacitor, when it reaches the supply voltage an opposing current will restrict further flow of charge...Thus it holds the charge....until it is applied to the load...but how it is possible in case of AC???
Yes, if the current is stopped when the voltage drops to zero there is no charge on the capacitor. If current is dropped when the voltage is at it's peak then the capacitor retains its charge, or will discharge slowly, as R x C, right? If in charging the capacitor is large enough R x C exceeds the 50 or 60 Hz cycle time the capacitor retains a charge. The magic is all about R x C.Hi, can anyone explain me how a capacitor stores charge when used in ac circuits
