Re: High voltage diode

<t>You can to d 120:480 -> 120:14400. You'll saturate the core. A transformer core has a maximum volts/turn, and you can be sure it's not going to be 4x under-rated. If lucky, you might find one that's 1.25-1.5x under-rated primary. So unfortunately, your plan is flawed and you can't get more than 1...

Re: Archived - Fusor progress, info & photos

In all honesty, if there is a return policy I would send that chamber back. If it's not leaky, it's bound to be full of virtual leaks that you will discover down the line as you perfect your system. The welds are so bad I can see multiple places visually where gross virtual leaks could occur.

Re: Archived - Fusor progress, info & photos

Wow, that is very unacceptable welding quality for a professionally made vacuum chamber. I'll be sure to stay away from that company.

Re: Help with Arduino DAQ

<t>I have done what you describe, along with feedback controlling valves allowing the computer to run my fusor hands-free indefinitely at a target setting, be it voltage, current, pressure, etc.<br/> <br/> Filtering will be your biggest enemy. You need to very, very thoroughly filter your voltage an...

<r>You can look at the more than 150 journal articles published out of Alcator since 2010 at this link: <URL url="http://www.psfc.mit.edu/library1/catalog/reports/2010.html"><LINK_TEXT text="http://www.psfc.mit.edu/library1/catalo ... /2010.html">http://www.psfc.mit.edu/library1/catalog/reports/2010...

Re: MIT Fusion Researchers Answer Your Questions (Slashdot)

<t>Alcator is almost inarguably the most important tokamak currently in service, with respect to the success of ITER. Alcator has the highest field of any tokamak, and very closely resembles the conditions that will be in ITER, just on a smaller physical scale. Almost everything currently being work...

Re: Help with voltage supply!

<t>A chamber sealed off being pumped by a turbo should be well below the striking point of the plasma. It sounds like you have gross leaks in your system. I would do some leak checking, preferably before you run the turbo much more, you might be making the pump pretty sad if there are large leaks on...

Re: LENR Rossi et al

I will be shocked if they let you anywhere near the facility with any detection gear. They have to keep up the perception that it's working, and they don't want to prove it themselves so they sure won't want you to prove it (or disprove it).
