What are the limitations of Van de Graff Generator?

Saikat asked

Answer:

One of the limitations of Van de Graff generator is the potential to which the dome can be raised. In normal condition, discharge takes place when the potential reaches 3 x 106 V. The potential can be increased further by  placing the entire system in a container filled with high-pressure gas.
