Power Factor Correction Capacitors
Posted 02 November 2009 - 04:21 AM
I need to find a good affordable source for the capacitors so I was hoping someone here could make a suggestion? I can't spend $2 or $3 dollars on each cap, I am hoping to find them for under $1, any thoughts would be appreciated.
Also I have been using Metalized Polypropylene caps and was wondering if there was a better type to use?

Welcome to the forum.
I would strongly recommend that you use capacitors that are designed for power factor correction. These will be a self healing type designed for continuous operation on AC voltages.
I do not expect that you will be able to purchase these for $1.
