Subject: Why failure rate of a capacitor is higher for non-operating vs operating condition
Can you please try to find the failure rate with 10% duty cycle ? I might be that for 0% duty cycle calculation there is some bug in software. Ideally what you pointed out is correct. Operating mode failure rate should be higher than Non Operating.
