Conference Record of the Twenty-Sixth International Power Modulator Symposium, 2004 and 2004 High-Voltage Workshop.
This paper will describe how film capacitors with energy densities of greater than 1 J/cc and suitable for millisecond discharge applications requiring limited life have been characterized. A variety of polymer films were tested in "model" capacitors storing and delivering hundreds of Joules of energy at voltages of 2-10 kV. Selfhealing metallized film electrodes were utilized in these designs to achieve electric fields greater than 500 MV/m. Maximum operating voltage for short-term anddoi:10.1109/modsym.2004.1433508 fatcat:kko2eoaxsnevrd5boqbdxqmk5y
