Capacitance Value from CPE: A Calculator

 

 

 

RESOURCES > EIS > CPE > CALCULATING C > CALCULATOR

Nyquist for (RQ) This calculator can be used to calculate the "true" capacitance from a depressed semicircle model ( a Constant Phase Element in parallel with a resistor ). If your data has been fit to a depressed semicircle, locate the frequency at the top of the semicircle, and enter omegamax, Qo, and the exponent, n.

Press [Convert...] to update the value of the capacitance.


Enter Omegamax, CPE parameters:

omegamax

Qo

s-n

n
(exponent)

1.0 => n > 0.0
n value should be > 0.75 for reasonable confidence in C values


Capacitance

Press "Convert..." after you change Capacitance unit.

Uses JavaScript. You must have a JavaScript capable
browser, and have scripting enabled.

 

 

 


The equation used by this calculator is:  C = Qo * (omegamax)(n-1)

The equation for the constant phase element assumed by this calculator is:

Z = 1 / [ Qo * ( j * omega )n ]
