A close-tap pair design of buried-foil capacitors

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

For many years the standard weak-link, pulse-discharge capacitors for DOE systems have utilized either the dry-wrap-and-fill, buried-foil Mylar capacitor or the Flourinert-filled, extended-foil Mylar capacitor designs. New stringent system requirements demanded a low-inductance, weak-link capacitor with higher energy density than the dry-wrap-and-fill, extended-foil Mylar capacitor. The hoop-shaped requirement, so that vital components could be thermally protected inside the weak-link capacitor, made the Flourinert capacitor design too expensive, complex and impractical. The low-inductance requirement eliminated the standard dry-wrap-and-fill, buried-foil design. This paper discusses evolvement of the close-tap-pair design of a buried-foil capacitor, which resulted in a capacitor that met the volume, ... continued below
