The film capacitors are also knows as film caps or the power film capacitor that are generally made over a two plastic films, covered over a metallic electrodes and wound into a cylindrical shaped winding structure. These capacitors are further based on the polypropylene film as a dielectric, and are used for both high frequency, and power application such as heating, pulse power energy discharge application, and AC capacitors used for the electrical distribution applications. The film capacitor is widely used over different sector, owing to their high characteristics. These capacitors are further deployed with high precision capacitance values and it has capacity that retains values over a longer comparing the other capacitor types. Moreover, the film capacitor has a longer shelf & service life and high reliability with a low average failure rate. The capacitor also contains various types of metalized capacitor, polyester film, polypropylene film, PTFE film, and polystyrene film.
