The problem of the interelectrode distance between high voltage capacitors
, some customers will entangle this problem, because they emphasize: we have strict requirements on the assembly space of the product or the size of the capacitor! For this insistence, we have no choice. Because the discharge distance must be guaranteed, as well as the voltage and capacity. Science is rigorous and cannot be compromised or fulfilled.
A customer wants to use our 500KV capacitor directly in the air, and the highest pulse voltage may reach 1000KV. Ask us: Is it ok? We told him: This is not working. According to their application, put it directly into the air. First, the height of the discharge distance should be guaranteed. In this way, the height of the capacitor must be no less than 1 m2. At the same time, the height of the ground should be guaranteed when applied. Because the voltage is as high as 1000 KV, the lower end of the capacitor must be off the ground. The height of about 1 m 2 is used for security. This is the guarantee of the distance between the poles and the protection of the polar distance.
In addition to the requirements of this distance, we must also ensure the thickness of the epoxy, the umbrella skirt structure of the capacitor casing. These are the real safety measures. UHV applications can not be sloppy. So don't sacrifice the design of the capacitor to be yourself. Equipment considerations, not worth it, will not succeed. I hope customers can fully consider our suggestions!
