Re: Need Help With Capacitor

Your pulse discharge is going to oscillate
however: a smooth wide strap will have the lowest resistance to
this type of energy.
Since my garage is about 20 degrees below freezing, I thought I would make
some caps indoors.  I was thinking of using wide straps instead of the
6 gauge wire that I used in my other cap.  The question is how wide is 
wide enough?  I was leaning towards a few 2" straps placed along
the length of the conductor, thereby reducing inductance.  The conductor
is about 10 or 12 mils thick aluminum.
