Question

What factors determine the electrolytic capacitor's service life?

Answer

Generally, the operating temperature is the most important factor.

Other factors that influence the service life include the applied voltage, ripple currents, and individual variations among electrolytic capacitors.

The factors were taken into consideration when designing S8VS Switch Mode Power Supply.
