how many capacitors per stage are there in a cockcroft-walton generator?

sort by: active | newest | oldest
There's one in a Marx pulse generator and 2 or three in a CW generator - but a Marx delivers pulses, and a CW is a continuous output.

As L. Says, A Cockroft and Walton multiplier is NOT the same as a Marx generator,
Funny thing, about an hour ago, I pointed out Sir John Cockroft's house, which is near here.

that is not answering the question, that link is to the power supply of the marx generator, which is a cockcroft-walton mutipiler!
Which link ? 
There was a link to plasmana's high voltage supply labelled "Marx", and a link to Wikipedia on the C-W. I'd say the Wiki' page has enough answer in it alone.

There seems to be a bit of confusion between Marx and CW generators here.
Either go with that instructable or build yourself a CW.
How many depends upon the type of generator.
