Let's say I have qty 40 400v 1000uf caps and I want to run at 2kv and I want to have the highest capacitance possible. To get to 2kv would I need 5 or 10 caps (or how many stages - how many caps total to get 2kv)? To get the higher capacitance, would I run equal # of caps at each stage to get a higher total capacitance?
Also, is it possible to run 5 voltage multipliers in parallel (5 identical setups) to get 5x capacitance? I know it is similar to running the caps in parallel in each stage, but can be utilized differently.
