Ask Al presented by Quad Plus - Reforming Capacitors

Many AC Drives and other inverter types (i.e. solar) contain aluminum electrolytic capacitors for DC bus filtering. If these capacitors have been in storage for a period of time, for example in your spares, they may explode if reforming is not performed BEFORE applying full power. In this video we explain what is going on in the capacitor and what you can do to prevent explosions.
