Abstract : The article describes the design and final construction of a capacitor bank rated 625 kJ and intended to operate at four different charging voltages (50, 100, 200, and 250 kv), with such larger operating life than earlier designs (not less than 200,000 discharges as against 2000-5000) and with low total inductance. The main stages of the development consisted of designing a special capacitor (type KIMS-1) rated 10 microfarads (12.5 kJ), and a special system of interconnecting and switching the capacitor bank, consisting of special discharge gaps and various high-voltage coaxial cables. Problems involved in stacking the capacitors into columns, mechanical strength and safety during discharge are also discussed. (Author)
