did some modifications to the inductor and reran the coil tonite ( 02-11-01)
output increased by another 25% ... from an avg 8' to an easy 10' streamer.(
the previous inductor was running at 22 A all i had to do was slide the
off of the core by about 25%.. this increased the Amerage to 40 A.
the bad part of the modification was a noticeable increase of heating of
the caps (
2 maxwells in series each at 50KV .114uF ) previously they would rise about 5
degrees now they go to about 35 degrees above ambient air temp.
also increased the timing of the SRSG a bit forward to hit the peak of the
wave ( but this increased the safety gap activity by quite a bit) was
running SRSG at about 5 - 10 degrees BTDC ( wasnt using the full
"potential" of the
since i have the power available and a SRSG should i parallel the caps for
.228uF and retune ( altho this will be LTR by 2X) and go for the bigger
bang ?? or
do i go for .114uF -at- 50KV and see what that does?
Im asking cuz id hate to blow an expensive cap "experimenting" ...
btw im still working on a saturable core inductor ( i came across a 30KVA
transformer 3 phase that i think i may be able to work with )
