Capacitance and Testing

Posted by Sarah Landeen on Dec 14, 2016 3:04:00 PM

 

Capacitance is the charge held by two conductors separated by a non-conductive barrier. The barrier divides the conductors and causes them to hold opposite charges (like a battery). Your cable may have capacitance you didn’t know about. Two wires separated by insulation can act as the conductors and barrier that create capacitance. As current flows through the wires, the charge is trapped in the unaccounted capacitance of the wires.
