RE: possible large MMC capacitor...

Don't know but from looking at the picture:
there is zero information about the ESR or long-term current carrying
The info that _is_ given is that this is good for "snubbing" - ie: dealing
with occasional transients.
#1) - something that isn't known but is $22 cheaper (but if it blows, you
are out $176 plus shipping)
#1a) - is not known to work reliably, has zero community support, the
savings is only 10% or so,
these caps were probably around when the Geek Group did the MMC
they probably looked at them and didn't choose them.
#2) - something that works
#2a) - something that is supported by the community
I would go for #2...

Subject: possible large MMC capacitor...
Original poster: "Rodney Goolsby by way of Terry Fritz
Could this be used to make a large MMC style capacitor? Take 22 of them in
series which gives 1000v*22=22kv
copared to a geek MMC of compareble size....
.15uf/11=.0136uf per string
.0136uf*6 strings= .0816uf
11 caps*6 strings=66 caps
Thought it was worth asking, maybe useful for MOT of Pole pig cap.
