In which conditions, capacitor is going to be short circuited and capacitor is going to be open circuited.

When capacitor is completely discharged, can we say it is open circuited , since there is no conduction.

I want to know in what situations, capacitor acts as open circuit and short circuit.

During a transient response of an RC circuit, after a long period of time, the capacitor can be treated like an open circuit. There's another instance where if you study the small signal analysis of a BJT or MOSFET circuits, capacitors will be treated like a short circuit (not to be confused with the natural capacitances that occur on semiconductor devices, i.e. overlap capacitance, parasitic capacitances etc.)

    \$\begingroup\$ Also in transient analysis, initially at t=0, an uncharged capacitor is considered short when connected to a DC voltage source. \$\endgroup\$ – Mitu Raj Apr 22 '18 at 5:06
