Abstract : This final report describes discharge-life tests on capacitors which use polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) as the principal dielectric. Discharge-life tests on all-film capacitors impregnated with silicone oil and recent tests on PDVF/paper capacitors impregnated with castor oil are described. The manufacturing procedure of vacuum-qualified PVDF/paper/castor oil capacitors is discussed.
