Re: rotary gaps and neons

Even with a synchronous gap the secondary voltage can behave in a
chaotic way, depending on the transformer inductance, the capacitance,
and the primary voltage. A safety gap across the transformer is the
safest way to go.
There has been a lot of talk here about triggered gaps, but I have
missed it if anyone gave details of the triggering frequency, the spark
frequency and phasing, and proper adjustments. Assume these are run in
a synchronous mode, but????? More dope?
