Film Capacitor Performs Filtering To 1200 Vdc

Suited to IGBT power filtering and dc-link inverter applications, Cornell Dubilier’s Type 947C is a high-current medium-power film capacitor for dc filtering up to 1200 Vdc. The 947C’s higher voltage and current handling allows it to replace aluminum electrolytics in dc link applications that can use lower bus capacitance as is typically the case with inverters designed for wind energy, solar and fuel cell applications supplying to the grid.
