I heard that they were Rogowski profiled discs. The Rogowski profile gives a
uniform electric field over the whole surface of the disc, even the edges.
The result is to give a breakdown strength almost as good as a spun toroid
would have, if you could make one in that size, which you can't and that's
why they use this method instead. AFAIK.
