    high voltage dc filter capacitors

    Hello Fellow Members,

    I have a step-up 120v to 1000v transformer with a current output of 1.5 Amps.

    I would like to convert the output to variable DC. What type/size of filter capacitor(s) would I need?

    Can someone recommend a schematic/circuit.

    This circuit will be used in Electrolysis Experiments. Thanks in advance.

    electrolysis is best done using constant current supplies.
    try to use a current mode smps fot this job as ur current is high
    mail me if u need mode details
    hock

    1200V/1500V film type capacitor would be fit.
    Capacitance is up to load current and ripple voltage.

    Good Luck!
