Excellent charge-discharge cycle life in comparison to rechargeable batteries. Wide range of products, from dozens to thousands of farads. Used in applications requiring many rapid charge/discharge cycles rather than long term compact energy storage, e.g., regenerative braking.
Due to their relatively high capacitance values aluminum electrolytic capacitors have low impedance values. They are typically used in power supplies, switched-mode power supplies and DC-DC converters for smoothing and buffering rectified DC voltages in many electronic devices as well as in industrial power supplies and frequency converters as DC link capacitors for drives, inverters for photovoltaic, and converters in wind power plants.
An alternative to the aluminum electrolytic capacitor, the aluminum polymer capacitor replaces liquid electrolyte with solid polymer electrolyte, yielding lower ESR and longer operating life.
These capacitors use a combination of a liquid and a conductive polymer to serve as the electrolyte and aluminum as the cathode. ESR values are higher than other polymer capacitors, but low considering the power applications they are used for.
