Capacitors are simple passive electronic components that receive and supply electricity. While the design of capacitors will vary depending on the applications, most capacitors consist of two conductors, often in the form of metal plates, separated from each other by a dielectric insulator (e.g., glass, ceramics, and oxide layers). Capacitors store energy by blocking the flow of energy with their insulator, accumulating a charge in one of the two conductors and inducing an opposing charge in the other (e.g., a battery). Capacitors are ideal for energy storage, reducing voltage pulsation and removing electrical noise. Check out our 49 listings of Capacitors today!
