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.
