Film capacitors are playing an increasingly important role in power‐related fields, driven by the continuous development of dielectric materials and practical needs. Long‐term accumulation has also led to an increasing wealth of data related to film capacitors. Sonification opens up a new way for people to make good use of data from film capacitors. A framework for sonifying film capacitors data based on TwoTone is presented. Based on the analysis and discussion, it is clear that the sonification results can easily represent the monotonic variation pattern of film capacitors data. What's more, the sonification results increase the possibility that people pay attention to the changing trend of film capacitors data when there is no significant difference in the visual perception of the data. In addition to providing a new way of music generation of electrical equipment, the method proposed is expected to contribute to theory reference in typical scenarios, such as factory calibration of film capacitors, monitoring of film capacitor operation status, and presentation of statistical data of film capacitors' dielectric materials, which will help us to better understand the distribution characteristics of polymer films.
