hi all,
i'm currently doing my final project entitle of "power factor correction device for domestic application"
right now i'm still trying to get the square wave from both voltage and current from the transformers to produce the square wave
what is bothering me know is the selection of capacitor type, from what i've heard every type of capacitor have its own specific purpose..
so which one is suitable for the capacitor bank (low voltage level)??
hope to get guidances from all the experts here

Best regard

Hello x20a

Capacitors used for power factor correction must be AC rated and are generally film capacitors.

Best regards,
