Original poster: "Terry Fritz" <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net> Hi Max, I get: System Type Cap Size Primary Current Resonant 42.44nF 26Arms LTR static gap 60nF 29Arms LTR rotary gap 112nF 55Arms The voltage per string should add up to 21000 volts. Typically, MMC caps take 3 amps RMS per string so you should have enough strings such that the total current matches the above current numbers. Basically just taking the numbers for a single 15/60 system and multiplying by four. Your 0.0043uF caps seem rather low for an MMC. Perhaps you meant 0.043uF? 21000 / 1500 = 14 caps per string. Each string has a value of 0.0043 / 14 = 0.307nF. To get to 42.44nF you would need 138 strings! If you meant 0.043uF then you would need 14 strings.
