Three Litz wires have been used in parallel in order to decrease the layer to layer voltage down to 4 kV and the coil voltage down to 8 kV. A two millimeter thick epoxy plate has been glued between each layer, in order to prevent any electrical breakdown between the layers. A special epoxy has been used to minimize the inner temperature of the coil, which reached 180°C with a dissipated power of 5.2 kW. The use of parallel Litz wire leads to currents having different phase angle in every wire which has to be corrected.
