Sorry to dredge this up again, but I'm still unsure about
construction/materials for my new cap. I've been thinking about making
a paper/oil and Al flashing, or oil and flashing cap. Which is least
lossy, and least likely to fail? I plan on running it at 21 kV or more
(although in reality, it probably won't see more than 18kV), so how
thick should the dielectric be? I'm going to use a 50 cal. ammo can for
an enclosure. Each should yield 15-25 nF (depending on design). I need
a total of 100 nF (two different PSU's for my coil), so this will take a
while :-(. At least I can get materials at low cost.
Also, how can I "torture test" on of these without running a coil with
it? I think simply hooking it up to a xfmr with a sparkgap would work,
yet would be very hard on the power supply. Any suggestions?
Any input is greatly appreciated.
