Hi! This is about the power supply i talked of in a previous thread: a mains power supply. The power supply is slightly modified and look like this: mains 220v, isolation transformer then through a bridge rectifier and a filter capacitor bank with 8 1500uf 400v caps, finally to a coil(NOT a railgun/coilgun. It is an electromagnet for plasma experiments). My problem is that how to discharge the capacitor bank in a safe manner after shutting off mains? Resistors, light blubs or something else?
Thanks in advance!

PLEASE post a schematic. If you discussed this in another thread, how can your post count be 2?
