Re: Streamer length vs. power delivery time...
Original poster: Terry Fritz <teslalist@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
I am having a little trouble getting MicroSim and ScanTesla to agree about
things this night...
I "think" Rprimary should be about in the 0.5 ohm range for a DRSSTC. That
is a pretty critical factor. We will have to really test it as time permits...
So Let me work on it awhile and see if I can fix things...

Doh! I used to do it that way, but it never seemed to simulate quite
right (didnt seem to burn up enough energy) so i figured they probably
needed to be in parallel! Oops!
Well, now that ive changed that, i find 14.2J bang energy vs 11.75J
streamer energy, but it takes some time after the driving has stopped
for that energy to end up in the streamer. At the time of cut off
(150uS) i find 14.6J for the bang energy and 5J for the streamer. Not
sure exactly whats going on here:
How does the bang energy decrease at the end? Is that just energy
going back to the filter caps i assume?
