A 5.7 MJ, 10 kV capacitor power supply was designed and constructed primarily to power an electromagnetic launcher. The power supply consists of five subsystems: capacitor bank, capacitor charging supplies and high-voltage distribution system, coaxial bus system, inductors (solenoid and coaxial), and control system. Each subsystem is described in detail. The overall power supply program has exceeded all design objectives. The supply has been operated at over 150 discharges. The capacitor power supply has proved itself to be highly reliable, safe, and easy to operate
