that would require 1280 uF at 5000V - or about 210 uF per amp.
The largest value 3 kV caps I can find on Mouser are 2.5uF and running a pair in series for 6 kV operation would yield a fourth of that. There are some rated for 5-6 kV but at far lower capacitance.
That's a whole bunch at that voltage!
I just tossed my 50Khz power supplies in the trash frim my servo experiments. I stopped because it was getting too unsafe. They worked very well, silent background. However the ambilocal cords scared me. During testing, I was able to measure a peak of 28ma per phase on the god mod. The god mod on my amps was putting out 7100 vdc with no signal.
Ask Mike about the magnetic/hydraulic breakers.
There's a good chance he'll tell you that with that change it'll negate the need for the God Mod - can go back to one HV trans and reduce risk of trans failure.
Those breakers are a bit of a game changer.
