Why is 8 ohms too much? Is not as simple as 240v / 8ohms = 30A? Or is it
just because of the extreme heat/power loss?
8 ohms in the primary will cause a large voltage drop and reduce the primary
voltage to the pig by quite a bit. You really want to use an inductive
ballast to do the primary current control then just an ohm or two of
resistance to smooth things out a bit. Just experiment with it and you will
find what works best.
