Just a curious question, or two...If we could actually SEE magnetic fields,
what would the field around the average, say 900va coil look like? how far
out would it extend, etc...what shape would it take?
Also, when a core saturates, what exactly happens...we know what its effects
are, heat, etc.., but what is actually happening to the iron and magnetic
thanks for any insights!
With the original setup I had with my 6" coil, using a 30 degree saucer
shaped primary, running at 12 kv 120 ma, I was slightly overcoupled. With
all the lights off, just before breakout, you could see an intense blue field
that looked like a Christmas tree. As wide as the primary on the bottom and
tapering up to the top of the coil. Quite pretty actually.
