    I found this relation about the optimum stages and also two examples. However I can not have the same results as they do. Can anyone help me, please ?

    1.Ex.

    Noptimum = INT[SQRT( Epk * fC/Iload)]
    f we drive our CW with an input voltage Epk=10kV and a load of 10mA, running at 70kHz and 390pF capacitors, Noptimum=INT[5.22]=5

    2.Ex.
    For a generator with Epk=100 kV, f=500 Hz, C=7μF and I=500 mA,
    nopt=10.

    Yes, I've read this article. I found this equation into two books. The problem is when I substitute the numbers given for these two examples I have very different results.
