Hello all,

Iv been searching the net for an answer to a problem im having and iv
found this
great forum and saw a thread that came close to what I was after but just
not
right. So I thought that i would start a new one asking the question.

Im trying to calculate a capacitor size for a time off delay circuit. Im still trying to find out the wattage of the motors that im trying to delay so i cant post these up.

I am working with a 12v dc power source and im trying to keep these motors going for at least 40 sec. All this info is useless with out the wattage i know but the formula should still be the same.

So the real question is do anyone know the formula for capasitor sizing in a 12v dc system. If so that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you in advance.

Ben
