FAQ: Measuring Fusor Current

... is a MUST for real fusor operation and data collection on a research level system. Reading the system current in a manner which retains full safety grounding is ultra important. Farnsworth's team at ITT measured their HV supply current directly on the hot lead!!!! You can sometimes see in ...
