Monster pulse power generator?
« on: September 11, 2020, 05:02:37 PM »
Does anyone want to build a monster pulsed power generator? Of coarse you do! This Aerovox energy discharge capacitor has a capacitance of 290 uf and is rated at 24 KV. It can store 83,000 joules at its full charge voltage of 24 KV! A quarter can be shrunk to the size of a dime with "only" 7,000 joules. You are only limited by your imagination with what you can do with this behemoth! Here are some ideas: coin shrinker, can crusher, disc launcher, fruit/vegetable exploder, wire exploder, rail gun, pulsed laser,  inter-dimensional transporter (just kidding) ... ???

The price of $350 is actually very good. I paid $275 for a 100 uf, 22 KV similar Aerovox capacitor about 10 years ago. Shipping would be expensive but it would be worth it. The 24 KV maximum voltage is also very compatible with charging from either a NST or a beefy flyback transformer power supply. Triggering with a spark gap switch to as low as 2000 volts would be simple and reliable. The voltage is also low enough that extraordinary insulation measures do not have to be taken.

If I didn't already have a 24,000 joule capacitor in my pulsed power generator I would buy one of these! The same seller also lists similar  Aerovox capacitors with 211 uf at 22 KV which might be more in the sweet spot for a pulsed power generator.

Warning: these are extremely dangerous! It will do a lot more than stop your heart, it will take your arm off or worse if you are careless!

Here is the link.

I would love to invest in a pallet of those, but shipping will properly be more to get them to Europe :)
