Tempest SGTC MMC array

Tempest SGTC MMC array

This is the capacitor array for my spark gap tesla coil Tempest. The capacitor is 13 nF at 16,000 v. I will be updating with more posts soon about this coil, It is an NST based spark gap type tesla coil with an MMC comprised of 100 1600V polyfilm caps. The secondary is a 24 AWG 14 inch tall coil on a 3 inch pipe, an the topload is a short run of aluminium vent ducting.
