Test High Capacitance Components with the Doble Type C Resonating Inductor

Capacitance and Dissipation Factor (C&DF) test equipment can sometimes be limited by their power supply when testing highly capacitive objects.  An example of power system apparatus that might fall into this category would include large motors, generators or  cabling.  Test specimens that have a characteristically higher capacitance value will sometimes achieve a maximum output current from the test equipment at less than the desired test voltage.  By appropriately positioning a resonating inductor that is adjusted to resonate with the capacitance of the test object, the range of charging current from the test equipment can effectively be extended to accommodate testing of more capacitive test objects.
