A. When there is a fluctuation of voltage in a capacitor, a charge or discharge current enters or leaves the capacitor in response to this. The current that enters or leaves the capacitor is known as a ripple current. This current is normally indicated with an effective value because it is not a direct current in principle. The capacitor generates heat with the ripple current so an upper limit must be set, and the value of this upper limit is what is known as the allowable ripple current.
