RE: Combining several caps
Original poster: "Mccauley, Daniel H by way of Terry Fritz <teslalist-at-qwest-dot-net>" <daniel.h.mccauley-at-lmco-dot-com>
It depends what type of capacitors these are. Since I'm not dutch, I don't
quite understand the descriptions.
for a school project a friend of mine and I are trying to make our own tc.
We've acquired a NST (sec. : 8kV, 10mA at 220V, 50Hz) and so WinTesla
suggested we use a 4 nF capacitator. After searching the internet I found
the following site (in Dutch, yet there's nothing you won't understand ;) )
What seemed the simplest for us is using 16 (C1) 1nF 2kV caps, placed in 4
parallel rows of 4 caps in series. We were wondering whether this is
possible, because the 4 rows might discharge into eachother instead of into
the primary/spark gap. Can that happen, will it, and what could we do about
One smaller question, 6,88 euro (equals about 6 dollar 50) doesn't seem
expensive for a cap at all.. are we missing something? :) or might this be
the wrong type cap?
thanks in advance,
Karen & Ramon
