### Synonyms: electrical-capacitance

Anything about electrical capacitance, i.e. the electrical parameter that relates charges on conductors with the voltage between them. Capacitance is also a measure of the tendency of a conductor to oppose a change in its electrostatic potential.

Capacitance is the main parameter of a capacitor, but it's also a parameter used in other situations like the description of parasitic effects in the practical realization of circuits (e.g. the unavoidable capacitance between the windings of a transformer).

If we a varactor and we want to control let's say the resonant frequency of the circuit ,in my schematic we must add R1 correct?Else we create a low resistance path for current to flow not through ...

Problem Description I am trying to design a BLDC inverter and I am in doubt of what would be the right approach for estimating the input capacitor size/type. Doing it empirically or throwing every...

What is a typical value for capacitance of a real inductor? Does this internal capacitance exist only under AC and not DC?
