Re: Archived - Yet another HV power supply project

... the output to IGBT at around 30-100+kHz rate with amplitude Vp = supply voltage (in my case i used a 12v battery) making a Vp-p of 24volts. The reason ... blocking capacitor between you square wave power supply and HV tank for safety. And make sure the tank is filled with transformer oil.

HVSafety Circuit for comments

I tend to over think safety [because I'm paranoid (in a plan for the worst, hope for the best way)] but I am ... input with monitoring of status and output. The circuit would be a TBD low voltage, powered off the Keyed System Master Switch, use NC Mushroom switches so ALL the ...

Re: Completion of Demo Fusor

... in any manner. Have fun doing this work (I do) but be careful - high voltage is dangerous and real fusors are lethal. Grounding a fusor chamber ... ground is valid as well as if neutral/hot have the correct polarity. Safety is your responsibility.

High Voltage Multiplier (VM) with x-former System

... completed HV multiplier de-rated using a microwave x-former (MWX); for safety, the MWX has been isolated via a HV cap (part of one stage of the voltage multiplier) and all put in a grounded metal case. In this manner, the high voltage/current ...

Re: Images of 100 kV Voltage Multiplier

... Even then I now keep that system away from my general work area for safety for testing and use. An aside: I was concerned that my high voltage probe was way off so I did pull out a digital DC supply that goes to +/- 6 kV and the ...
