Haefely Cockcroft-Walton voltage multiplier and rectifier. 5kHz 75kV AC to -750kV out.


The Haefely is a simple 5-stage diode voltage multiplier.The multiplier consists of two stacks of capacitors, linked by an array of diodes. The capacitors on the right side of the diagram are DC and hold a relatively constant charge. The capacitors on the left side of the diagram are coupling capacitors. They hold a charge but also couple the AC from the source at the bottom of the stack.
