Low ESR electrolytic capacitors
A completely resistance-free capacitor would be perfect for many applications. Unfortunately, this type of construction would be impossible as there is no material that can guarantee zero resistance. Nevertheless, Low ESR electrolytic capacitors are close to ideal in this respect.
The ESR skin itself stands for Equivalent Series Resistance and refers to the basic feature of the presented capacitors - reduced resistance. On the other hand, Low suggests that we are dealing with a low-impedance device. Low ESR electrolytic capacitors are low impedance capacitors with a very low resistance value. This variant of products can also be used for audio bands due to their use in low frequencies.
Why is the ESR parameter so important when choosing capacitors?
ESR is a parameter whose value depends both on the frequency of the signals at which the capacitor operates and the temperature. Age is another factor that influences the value of ESR - the value grows over time.
Low ESR electrolytic capacitors are widely used in various types of computers and other power supplies, intended for charging phones and those enabling the operation of other devices.
The capacitors used in the input stages of the power supplies act as a voltage buffer. They also ensure stability when the voltage on the side of the power grid is lower than the rated value. What's more, they maintain the desired voltage level also during switching operations, in a degree that converts alternating voltage into direct voltage. Capacitors prevent the transmission of switching disturbances. As for the power supply output, then the electrolytic capacitors ESR are responsible for the voltage waveform. In many switching power supplies, the switching processes are repeated with a frequency of several thousand Hertz. It should be remembered that the higher the switching frequency when using ordinary electrolytic capacitors with a high ESR value, the lower their efficiency on both sides of the power supply. It should also be remembered that the ESR is inversely proportional to the capacitance of the capacitor. The greater the capacity of the device, the lower the ESR level.
