Re: Using a Flyback

... first. Do this for the smallest (least area) leg of the core. For some safety margin, you want to keep total the flux swing to about 3000 gauss ... fast recovery output diodes. If you can only get standard recovery high voltage diodes, you are better off with the 60Hz approach. Primary turns ...

References on High Voltage Technique?

Could somebody point me to some good books on high voltage circuit techniques? By techniques I mean safety, design, testing, measurement, etc.
