Capacitors 1st Edition, by R.P. Deshpande
The role of capacitors to help improve grid efficiency and reliability can hardly be overstated. By producing reactive power, capacitors compensate for the reactive power consumption of electrical motors, transformers, etc. This results in more stable power grids with increased transmission capacity and reduced losses. Though an elementary electrical device, its applications in emerging fields, such as smart-grids and renewable energy, have underscored capacitor’s versatility and business value.
The book “Capacitors” is an authoritative account about capacitors and related developments. Mr. Deshpande’s deep theoretical knowledge and an envious industry experience provide for ample academic treatment about the subject matter and, an evolutionary perspective of capacitor technology. The book covers capacitors for both electrical and electronic fields in sufficient details, including latest development trends. Possibility of using ultracapacitors for grid stability and power quality through active power management are very interesting. The new breed ultracapacitors are seen to have opened many new avenues for capacitor applications.
Importantly for electrical or power engineering students, as also for electronic engineers, the book brings forward capacitors’ diverse business applications and this, in my opinion, could prove inspirational for many to choose it as a career option. As a reference guide, this work is equally valuable to young and mid-career professionals and as also to entrepreneurs connected with capacitors.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about the exciting field of capacitors, and urge colleges and universities to make it available through their libraries.
Capacitor, a basic component in electrical and electronic engineering, engulfs varied functions in electronic circuits, automobiles traction, mobiles, motors and power supplies, to mention a few. The author, in this book, brings together up to date information on most present-day capacitors. This book is the outcome of vast experience of the author in the capacitor industry.
The strength of this book lies in the comprehensive technical data and latest manufacturing practices relevant to the users in the capacitor industry. The richness of the book lies in its wide coverage of the subject matter, starting with a brief history of capacitors, their types, as also suitability for different applications. It dwells at length on basics like dielectrics, electrodes, construction and manufacture of capacitors and describes the latest trends and developments taking place in capacitor fields. All types of dielectrics and capacitors including XY safety capacitors are covered. Several applications of capacitors in power electronic circuits, automotive industry, power factor management, harmonic control are discussed in separate chapters.
Electrochemical capacitors, which have come up as a new class by themselves in addition to hitherto known electrostatic and electrolytic capacitors, hold huge potential. Of these, ultracapacitors (also known as supercapacitors), already in use in many parts of the world, but not yet properly known, hold a promising future in mobiles, computers and large power grid systems. In fact, the new capacitors dealt in the book are yet to find a place in study material or text books.
The book also gives useful data on practical aspects on the best ways to select appropriate products from alternatives available in the market, or for making the most economical choice for a given application. It also guides on proper testing methods for a capacitor user to ensure best performance of their product. Causes of field failures and guidelines to prevent capacitor failures presented in this book will be useful to users in designing long life products.
Overall, capacitor users in most electrical and electronic industries will find the book as a ready reference for most of their design work and for ensuring proper selection and testing of capacitors.
