Abstract:

At Sandia National Laboratories, we have developed a unique capacitor technology. This technology is based upon impregnation of plastic film capacitor rolls with per- fluorocarbon insulating liquids. At Los Alamos National Laboratory, we have installed and activated a 300-kW capacitor modulator. At the 3rd IEEE International Pulse Power Conference in June 1981, a program between the Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Sandia National Laboratories to evaluate this technology in repetitive discharge pulse power service was described in a paper by Bickford, Mauldin, and Sarjeant. Experimental data is beginning to flow from this program.
