im building a tesla coil and have so many questions about one thing and one thing only, the capacitor bank!
im building a tesla coil at my great uncles, my parts are limited, to make the capacitor bank i only have an unlimited supply of 100uf 330v capacitors, but they cannot charge in a 60hz cycle and i dont have a converter, could i put a diode so the sign wave never goes bolow 0 and make it work with the transformer capacitor and the coils? and to actually make the capacitor bank work with 7.5-10kv how would i have to wire them up? (like....... series or paralell and how many?)
update: ok now i only have an unlimited supply of capacitors that are all 330v but range from 80-120uf
