Measurands capacitance and dissipation factor

Measurands capacitance and dissipation factor

The determination of the capacitance and dissipation factor of a capacitor is just as important in high-voltage technology as it is in electronics. Whereas the capacitance is the main property of the capacitor, the dissipation factor is, in turn, a measure of the deviation from ideal capacitor properties.

The calibration of capacitance and dissipation factor is performed using:

  • Standards for capacitance
  • Measuring bridges.

The masurement of the capacitance and dissipation factor is provided not only on capacitors or reference capacitors but also on other electrotechnical components:

  • high voltage cables
  • transformers
  • high voltage capacitors

Relation between the capacitance and the dissipation factors of the capacitors

Calibration methode

The calibration of the capacitor and determination of its dissipation factor is carried out by using a capacitance measuring bridge. In this measurement the reference capacitor and capacitance measuring bridge are traceable calibrated standards.
