A small low-inductance PC 200-1.5 capacitor with pulsed charging to 200 kV has been developed. In this capacitor, which has an inductance of 1.5 nF, a combined paper-film insulator impregnated with castor oil is employed. To reduce the edge effect in the capacitor, a method of splitting the insulator into thin layers in the region of the plate's sharp edge by way of mutually shifting the capacitor's plates. PC 200-1.5 devices were used as peak capacitors at the LTD-100R stage of a high-power pulse generator and allowed the output power to be increased by ∼25%. The service life of these capacitors exceeded 2 × 103 pulses.
