Energy Buffer (e.g. Converter)

- capacitor stores DC voltage in an intermediate circuit
- high frequency ripple voltage generated by inverter is short-circuited

 

-

High volume/capacitance ratio

 

-

High DC-voltage strength

 

-

Low dissipation factor

 

Volume/capacitance ratio: high (DC-LINK MKP 3/4/4S/ 5) or very high (DC-LINK MKP 6, DC-LINK HC, DC-LINK HY)

High mechanical stability

Particular reliable contact configurations: 2-pin, 4-pin, screwable plate or screw connections (male or female)
 
Advantages Compared to Aluminium Electrolytic Capacitors:
 
Low self-inductance
High ripple current capability
High voltage/over-voltage strength by specific metallization (> 450 VDC) due to self-healing capability
Very constant C/C
Very low ESR and dissipation factor
Dry construction without electrolyte -> high reliability
Non polar construction
High insulation resistance
