How I can use a Cockcroft Walton generator to charge 2 capacitor banks of 320 v. and 720 microfarads?

I want to use a cockcroft walton generator to charge two capacitor banks of 320 volts 720 microfarads each one. Can you help me design a circuit for charge the capacitor banks with a input of 9-12 volts dc? I heard that this generator can work with positive dc pulses. If you can healp me make a circuit to charge the capacitor with the pulse generator will be great.
THANKS

Well hardly, you don't use C-W generators on DC.....

I look on wikipedia and says that can work with pulsing dc.
Thanks
Pulsing DC is AC.
no pulsing DC is on and off , AC is alternation negative to positive never stops and runs in 3 cycles in to us.
Do a fourier analysis, and come back to me.

I know that.
I want to make a the cockcroftwalton generator with pulse dc, I want to use a 555 timer to make the pulses but i dont know how.
Thanks
All you need is an oscillator like the ones explained here

Bear in mind that each stage of the C-W doubles volts only on zero load.

Thanks but I dont want to use 120 ac I want to use dc pulses from 9-12 volts

Do you have a Cockcroft Walton generator, or should you be using a camera-flash unit instead?
(720 uF is not a lot)
