ripple current

  • All these variations are like those ripple currents that although centered around the stone, are in fact away from it.
  • They are generally only capable of passing frequencies greater than approximately 50 MHz - ripple current cannot flow.
  • The types of capacitors used for power applications have a specified rated value for maximum ripple current.
  • Low ESR (effective series resistance) electrolytics are often required to handle the high ripple current.
  • While this happens with normal aging, high temperatures and large ripple current exacerbate the problem.
  • When the ripple current is within the battery-manufacturer-recommended level, the ripple voltage will also be well within the recommended level.
  • The low and stable ESR allows polymer capacitors to handle higher ripple current.
  • Therefore polymer capacitors can handle higher ripple current.
  • Aluminium electrolytic capacitors, the most common type for power supplies, experience shorter life expectancy at higher ripple currents.
  • In a circuit with significant ripple current, an increase in ESR will increase heat dissipation, thus accelerating aging.
  • Simple AC-powered battery chargers have much higher ripple current and ripple voltage than other kinds of battery supplies.
  • Ripple current is the AC component of an applied source (often a switched-mode power supply) whose frequency may be constant or varying.
  • These factors are voltage derating, ripple current and voltage conditions, maximum operating temperature, and circuit impedance.
  • Ripple current generates heat within the capacitor body due to the ESR of the capacitor.
  • Well-designed circuits pay attention to the ESR, ripple current rating, pulse operation, and temperature rating of capacitors.
  • In general, high amplitude ripple currents shorten the life expectancy, whereas low frequency ripple is more detrimental than high frequency.
  • Also, since the voltages are the same in magnitude, the ripple currents from the two inductors will be equal in magnitude.
  • There they sat on a shelving bank, and mopped the perspiration from their foreheads and necks, and gazed into the rippling current. Cited from Jimmie Higgins, by Upton Sinclair
  • High current impulse loads or high ripple currents can generate audible sound from the capacitor itself, draining energy and stressing the dielectric.
  • Tantalum electrolytic capacitors with solid manganese dioxide electrolyte are also limited by ripple current.
