Big Time Coil Problems...
Man, I'm really mad now. Our coil is not working at all (again?!). Our
power source is 150v going into 15Kv/90ma transformer to make 18Kv. We are
using a 6" secondary wound with 22 gauge wire. (Albeit short winding, it
should at least be doing something!) Our caps are mica transmitting caps
in series to make .00325µf at 20Kv. I believe this is where we are going
wrong. We can get no output at all from the coil no matter what. Do we
just need a better capacitor system to fix the whole thing? I know the
capacitance is really low, but I was hoping it would at least do something.
It seems like after that last secondary blew up, everything just went to
heck... Ugh, I hope this gets better soon...
