Capacitors used in AC circuits;

  1. A capacitor is used in AC circuits because it improves the power factor of the AC circuit.
  2. It only corrects the power factors from the capacitor back to the system.
  3. Capacitors are used to block DC static voltage.
  4. It is used to allow AC signals to pass from one circuit area to another circuit area.
  5. The diagram given below shows how a capacitor acts in an AC circuit;
