How to choose the right aluminum electrolytic capacitor for EV DC-link applications

Aluminum and hybrid polymer electrolytic capacitors have become an important part of most high-efficient electrical designs for xEV DC-link applications. These capacitor solutions have high ripple current capability and compactness helping to optimize the mechanical options required to develop DC/DC converters with higher performance.

Join this session at the Charged Virtual Conference on EV Engineering this Fall, presented by TDK Electronics, where we will discuss aluminum electrolytic capacitor technology and various characteristics, capabilities and features including compactness and equivalent series resistance (ESR), thermal properties, voltage rating and operating lifespan. There will be an overview of high-current solutions and capacity density capacitors for inverters and on-board charging. The session will also discuss mounting concepts that provides process flexibility and optimized designs for heat sink applications that enhance demanding xEV applications. Attendees will better understand how to select capacitors for any xEV DC-link project.
