RE: Cap size for arsg?
Original poster: "Mccauley, Daniel H by way of Terry Fritz <teslalist-at-qwest-dot-net>" <daniel.h.mccauley-at-lmco-dot-com>
When you say PT, I assume you mean potential transformer. And when you say
potential transformer, I assume you are speaking of the standard 14.4kV,
1.5kVA GE PTs most of us have been using. Anyways, if you are using a ARSG
and running at about 3kW (short durations), i found a 0.01uF to 0.027uF
capacitor to work extremely well. Terry Blake used a 0.01uF i believe with
his PT at the same power levels.
Typically with ARSG, you want a capacitor which is smaller than resonant
Here is my website with my PT coil.
