MMC for Tesla coil, inquery.... Hello all, Every project of mine starts like this... I first need to consider my budget. So, I am wanting to build a Tesla coil. I can get everything needed for this, but I have concerns about the primary capacitor. As I have looked all about the internet for a forum for Tesla coil fanatics, I have found none and I come to you all. Might you help? Okay, so the capacitor is exposed to intensely high voltages at a really high charge/discharge frequency (appx. 150kHz). An option for the capacitor is to use an MMC array. This is simply an array of several small caps together. As I have read online, these arrays call for a multitude of caps in the low capacitance and high voltage range. Usually scaling appx. 0.0x uF with x000 volt-ability. However, I have like, literally, hundreds of caps that are not quite on this scale. They are 4 uF, 300v caps. According to my math, I can put about 200 in series and end up with just about the right total values needed. They would be perfect because they already have a resistor built into they too. So, that all works out, but the question: Is this a good idea? This seems to work mathematically and financially, but practically? Is there something I am missing here? I do not mind making this huge array if I can save a buck. Thanks for your help. Any help would be much appreciated. -Nick "This free lunch is greasy. This lunch grease can fuel my car.
