Re: pulsed fusor power issues

... around 600 kv at 15 ma. By attaching the output coil dirrectly to the fusor grid the onerous chore of a ultra high voltage feed thru is avoided. Safety would be easier due to the fact that the other end would be tied to the case. All ultra high voltage would occur inside the fusor walls.<br/> ...
