Dielectric Losses

Some articles on losses:

Types Of Capacitor - Electrical Characteristics - Ohmic Losses, ESR, Dissipation Factor, and Quality Factor
... The summarized losses in discrete capacitors are ohmic AC losses ... DC losses are specified as "leakage current" or "insulating resistance" and are negligible for an AC specification ... AC losses are non-linear, possibly depending on frequency, temperature, age or humidity ...

Famous quotes containing the word losses:

    Hold back thy hours, dark Night, till we have done;
    The Day will come too soon.
    Young maids will curse thee, if thou steal’st away
    And leav’st their losses open to the day.
    Stay, stay, and hide
    The blushes of the bride.
    Francis Beaumont (1584-1616)
