Using true 100 KHz sine wave to measure the ESR value, which is equal to the testing method of capacitor manufacturer.

What is ESR of capacitor?

There is a series resistor inside capacitor, using 100kHz to remove the impedance
1/(2*pi*F*C), the impedance become small, and we can then measure the true series
resistor value.
A bad E-capacitor will have larger ESR and create large ripple rather than filtering
noise. Normally, a big capacitor is larger than 3 ohm.

Using this theory, we can measure the capacitor is bad/ damaged or good in condition.
Because our ESR meter only applies less than 15mV DC or peak to peak on a good
capacitor, as a result we can use it as in circuit test. Because this low testing voltage, it
cannot turn on the semiconductor inside a circuit under testing.
During repairing TV, LCD, Audio board, etc. we can in circuit testing the capacitor is
good or not.
