Title: A Review of Degradation Behavior and Modeling of Capacitors

Abstract

This paper firstly reviews the failure causes, modes and mechanisms of two major types of capacitors used in power electronic systems - metallized film capacitors and electrolytic capacitors. The degradation modeling related to these capacitors is then presented. Both physics-of-failure and data-driven degradation models for reliability and lifetime estimation are discussed. Based on the exhaustive literature review on degradation modeling of capacitors, we provide a critical assessment and future research directions.
