    Hello..

    is there any way to series or parallel these two capacitor value 17nf and 151pf???

    thanks

    Equations for CAPS in series: Ctotal=C1*C2/(C1+C2). For Caps in parallel: Ctotal=C1+C2. Watch out for voltage rating on the caps, especially in series as the applied voltage will be distributed generally unequally if the cap values are unequal. Also, for high-voltage work, you may or may not need a resistor across each cap in series to help equalize the cap voltage on each cap due to unequal leakage currents.
