The size of electronics is shrinking, yet power demands remain the same in spite of size reductions. How do you cram a lot of capacitance in high-power-density applications? Answer: you break down the capacitance requirement into banks of series and parallel strings.
Designing these capacitor banks is significant and sometimes requires multiple iterative steps. Join KEMET’s Axel Schmidt (Field Application Engineer) as he shares tips and tricks for series/parallel capacitor bank design.
