General Electric Capacitors are passive element widely used in general electrical mechanism and circuits that stores electrical energy. While allowing alternating current to pass, the general electric capacitors are used. They smooth the output of power supplies; they also stabilize voltage, and power flow. On opposite sides of insulating dielectric, storing the positive and negative charges, the capacitors works by this principle. The capacitor can continue to allow more charge until it achieves capacitance, or the point at whichever extra electrons that try to join are repelled. The capacitor will discharge, if a absolute path in the circuit is formed.
These capacitors are available in a wide range of sizes and types, as per the applications. These are frequently distinguished by the type of dielectric used. Ceramic, aluminum and electrolytic, oxides, even paper can be used as the dielectric. The type and size often conclude maximum capacitance and the application where capacitor is used. Energy storage, power factor correction, and motor starting are some of the basic application of electric capacitors.
