Sounds great! Still pondering what values I would like to tell Scott.
Richard, if you are using a balanced circuit(equidrive) what voltage should
the caps have vs the xfmr.Comparing to a given standard setup, in a balanced
circuit, you must use double the capacitance, would you 1/2 the voltage
rating? I am thinking of using xray xfmrs at 50-62KV (run at 1/2 normal
rating) and the cap rating for this situation, weights my final decision.
