I have recently blown a capacitor on my home made emp. I have got the perfect replacement which is an electrolytic capacitor, 330v, 140 micro farads.
I have charged it but I want to learn how to safely discharge a high voltage capacitor.
I was going to short the capacitor but my friend said that high voltage capacitors can blow when you short them.
I don't have any resistors that I can discharge with.
Any ideas? Or can you short the capacitor without it blowing?
