Abstract

Capacitor is one of the reliability critical components in power electronic systems. In the last two decades, many efforts in the academic research have
been devoted to the condition monitoring of capacitors to estimate their health status. Industry applications demand more reliable power electronics products with preventive maintenance. Nevertheless, most of the developed capacitor
condition monitoring technologies are rarely adopted by industry due to the complexity, increased cost and other relevant issues. An overview of the prior-art research in this area is therefore needed to justify the required resources and the corresponding performance of each of the key method. It serves to provide a guideline for industry to evaluate the available solutions by technology bench-marking, as well as to advance the academic research by discussing the history development and the future opportunities. Therefore, this paper firstly classifies the capacitor condition monitoring methods into three categories, then the respective technology evolution from 1993 to 2015 is summarized. Remarks on the state-of-the-art research and the future opportunities targeting for practical industry applications are given.
