Measuring capacitance
Hi I`m new here and a 70 years old "garage tinkerer" in the UK. is there anybody out there who can show some insight into a means of attaining the actual capacitance of an unusual capacitor that I have already built, and which I wish to step charge, using the known details ie "power in over time say 12.98vdc voltage for 10 minutes, and retained voltage say 2.47vdc over "total discharge time taken" to zero? say 2 hours 31 minutes 47.4 seconds?
I do have a Chinese capacitance meter which isn`t too bright but I have or can have fairly accurate voltage insertion times and values ( with a PWM controlled voltage in and digital tester)
Any help would be much appreciated. I wish to wind a pair of chokes to create resonance in the capacitor. creating a resonant circuit.
