To all of you who like to experiment:
I am building a rotary gap that allows break rate and
quench time to be adjusted independently of each other
(usually, break rate and quench time change
simultaneously as the motor speed is adjusted). Being
able to observe the effects of each variable on a
Tesla coil may open up new venues for research.
The gap would use oblong shaped stationary electrodes
that could be rotated in place exposing more or less
spark length to the flying electrodes for firing. This
should effectively alter dwell time without changing
motor speed. This particular gap will be asynchronous,
and I may use DC to get cleaner o-scope readings.
I should have one of these built pretty soon. I just
wanted to get the idea out there for anyone
Anyway, send me a mail if you would like a diagram,
I'll post results as soon as i get some data.
