MMC Design

Hi all,

I have decided to give up with my saltwater caps and jump on the MMC

I have come up with this for a design.

10KV neon voltage -at- 50 mA

so I need a 16nF Cap according to wintesla and my calcs.

I propose to make this as follows.

11 x 1600V 47nF caps in series
with 4 strings in parelel.  10Mohm resistors across each cap for safety.

I intend to use Philips 378 or 376 series caps, from farnell.

how does that sound?

all comments greatfully recieved.
