Re: High frequency power supply design.

FETs at any significant power level using the signal directly from an MCU. Strongly suggest you buy some good books on high voltage/SMPS design/transformer design, internet research can only carry you so far. Thanks for the advice! Could you please clarify though, what does FET and MCU stand for? A...

High frequency power supply design.

Hello everybody. So I'm about to order the electronic components so that I can build my own high frequency ferrite power supply. However before I do that I would be very grateful if the electronics wizards out there could double check my design and spot any flaws if there are any. This is meant to p...

Inverter theory

Hi everybody. So at the moment I am trying to make sense of power inverter theory, and would be very grateful for some clarification, or a link to somewhere where I can study the theory, since my google searches have been fruitless. I want to build my own power supply, and my thought process behind ...

Re: Manufacturing my own transformers

Thank you very much Rich. Sorry Chris I should have made that clear. It is for a full neutron producing fusor.

Re: Manufacturing my own transformers

Hi Martin. Are you looking for magnet wire? Have you considered tweaking your design to accomodate 10 or 12 gauge wire? If you only need a little bit, such as for the primary of a high frequency switcher, I can give you some. Thanks Rich, I feel like a bit of a fool for not spotting that it's calle...

Manufacturing my own transformers

Hi everyone.
I am wondering where I can get 11 AWG gauge copper wire for winding my own transformers, as I can't seem to find any on eBay.
Also if anybody has any experience winding their own transformers then any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: Voltage multiplier and neon transformer.

0. With an ordinary power transformer in good working order, what external connection are required to make the actual output voltage and current BOTH match the nameplate values? Not really sure what you mean by this. I think a transformer needs a mains input, live and neutral, and then on it's outp...
