Due to the global trend of electrification, more and better power capacitors are needed in the industrial, transportation, power generation, distribution, and transmission sectors. Highly efficient power quality and cost competitiveness are important factors. This article reviews the state-of-the-art technology of power capacitors based on metallize BOPP (Biaxially oriented polypropylene) and gives an outlook to possible future technologies incorporating nanocomposite dielectrics.
