Why do we use a capacitor in the ceiling fan?

The capacitor is an electrical component that provides power to the motor that spins the fan.

It creates a rotating magnetic field that helps move and rotate the blades of the fan.

It also creates a leading angle between two windings in the motor that produces torque.

The motor is a single-phase induction motor that uses two capacitors in parallel series. The capacitor is essential for starting and running the fan.
