Computing Capacitance

Application ID: 12689

A capacitor, in its simplest form, is a two terminal electrical device that stores electric energy when a voltage difference is applied across the terminals. The stored electric energy is proportional to the applied voltage squared and is quantified by the capacitance of the device. This model introduces a model of a simple capacitor, the electric field and device capacitance are solved for under electrostatic conditions.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
