Ctotal = 17.6 nF Irms = 8A

The datasheet have only ESR value: 0.009 Ohm up to 1MHZ, butno data for ripple current

Resonant freq of circuit = 200khz

If I calculate the resistive power dissipation for caps each carrying 1A

The resulting power per cap is 0.009Ohmx1x1 = 0.009W

Main questions:

The caps are CG0 type (+-%5), will the current distrubute evenly between the paralel connected caps?

Assuming an equal distrubution, is calculating the power dissipation through ESR enough?

Are there other effects to consider when estimating the maximum ripple current per cap.

Case is 1206.

Thank you for your input.
