Abstract:

Current-voltage relations as functions of time and temperature are presented for C67 Case Size I Monolythic capacitors. A study of possible means of predicting the capacitoris reported. No correlation was found between charge and discharge currents measured before life test and time-to-failure on life test. Also, no correlation was found between AC corona starting voltage and time-to-failure. It appears the only technique now available for the elimination of potential early failures is a measurement of leakage resistance after accelerated testing.
