12kj coilgun project Answered
Hello I am working on a new coilgun using 15 10000 uf 400v 17200 ma capacitors. The accelerator is 5 stage, while using 3 caps per stage each stage will have 2400j of energy. I will be posting updates on this forum every month or so.
my current setback on the project is charging
what I am wondering is what input current and voltage and output current would I need to charge 3 caps decently fast.
once that is solved I will line up 5 in parallel to charge all (1 per stage) if I need to line up a greater amount of a lower rated circuits I will.
