A measure of a materials ability to dissipate electricity. Disspition factor is the ratio of the number of watts dissipated by the material to the effective voltage and current. The ASTM D-150 test method measures a material specimen's dissipation of alternating current electricity at 50 Hz, 10,KHz, and/or 1 Mhz.

The ratio of the power dissipated in watts in an insulating material to the product of the effective voltage and the current. Measured at a frequency of 106 cycles per second.

A measure of the dielectric losses in the material defined as the tangent of the loss angle or the ratio of parallel resistance to parallel reactance expressed in percent.

A measure of the absorption of electromagnetic energy passing through a dielectric material.

A measure of the losses in a capacitor expressed as the ratio of the E.S.R. of a capacitor to its reactance at a specific frequency and temperature.

the tangent of the loss angle of the insulating material.

n. the ratio of the energy dissipated to the energy stored in a dielectric per hertz, also equal to the tangent of the loss angle

The tangent of the loss angle of the insulation material.

A value that represents the tendency of insulating or dielectric materials to absorb some of the energy in an alternating-current signal

The measure of electrical energy absorbed and lost in the insulating material when energy is applied in a circuit. 20-3060 has a dissipation factor of .01. This means that .01% of the energy being stored (capacitance) is lost. Dissipation factor is the ratio of the resistive component of a capacitor to the capacitive reactance of the capacitor. Also referred to as Loss Tangent. ASTM D150-59T.

A measure of the AC loss.

The measure of the loss of power which takes place in virtually all dielectric materials, usually in the form of heat. It's expressed as the ratio of the resistive (loss) component of the current to the capacitive component of current and is equal to the tangent of the loss angle.

In physics, the dissipation factor is a measure of the rate of loss of power of a mechanical mode, such as an oscillation, in a dissipative system.
