I am designing a voltage multiplier with 5 to 10 stages. I have this circuit where I run a transformer at 450KHz and feed the output to the voltage multiplier. Is it a good idea to use thin film capacitor?
I have it lying around and also super cheap when compared to ceramic capacitors of same rating.
Lets say I am making a 10 stage voltage multiplier (Cockcroft-Walton half wave multiplier) which runs at 450KHz with 250V fed to the multiplier, I should be getting 5KV as output. Is this a good choice of capacitor? I am worried about the derating at higher frequencies.
