LTXL
Capacitor

The winding element of the LTXL Cylindrical capacitor consists of a dielectric of polypropylene film and an electrode
of double-sided metalized paper. This winding construction achieves low losses and high inrush current withstand
capability. Non-PCB oil used for impregnation, enables good heat dissipation from the winding element to the
aluminum can's surface, thus preventing hot spots in the winding element. The capacitor is designed to cover
ambient temperatures of up to 70°C.

Self-Healing
At the end of service life, or due to inadmissible electrical or thermal overload, an insulation breakdown may occur. A
breakdown causes a small arc which evaporates the metal layer around the point of breakdown and re-establishes
the insulation at the place of perforation. After electric breakdown, the capacitor can still be used. The decrease of
Capacitance caused by a self-healing process is less than 100 pF. The self-healing process lasts for a few
microseconds only and the energy necessary for healing can be measured only by means of sensitive instruments.

LTXL Box
For any capacitor, its life largely depends upon the operating temperature. LTXL box type capacitors use advanced
APP technology. By employing thicker aluminium foil, thicker polypropylene film and special impregnants, LTXL box
type capacitor is able to operate at lower temperatures and hence achieve longer life. These capacitors are thus
able to withstand stringent operating conditions. The higher surface area and special epoxy based coating also
ensures better heat dissipation.

Capacitor Technology
In LTXL box, two polypropelene films and
two Al films are grouped together as shown
in the figure below. The wave-cut and heavy
edge metalized films are then rolled to form
a capacitor element. Many such capacitor
elements are pressed and stacked together
and are internally connected in parallel.
Depending upon the rating of the capacitor, 1
the number of stacks will differ. These 1 Al Film

Design of LT Capacitor

Each capacitor elements is protected by


an internal fuse as shown in the figure
below. If there is any internal short capacitor element fuse
circuit in any of the capacitor element,
fuse of that corresponding capacitor

elements will blow and remaining
elements will be protected.
