Re: Fwd: Reducing tank capacitance
Original poster: Vardan <vardan01@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
I have a Maxwell cap rated at 0.03uF / 30,000V for my 15/60 powered
coil. I would like to get total capacitance down to around 0.02uF.
My question is can this be done by adding a MMC string in series
with the Maxwell - i.e., can you mix different types of caps to get
the desired value?
Sure! You can always string caps together with appropriate ratings
to reduce the capacitance. If the voltages and currents are safe, it
is just a matter of series capacitor values.
Or should I just build a complete MMC to 0.02uF & replace the
It might be "easier" just to make a whole new MMC cap at the value
you wish rather than to make an MMC "fixer upper series cap". It
seems bad just to throw your old cap on the self, but no technical
reason not to just make a whole new one if it is just as easy...
