Re: PIRANHA - New Top Load Configuration
Original poster: Vardan <vardan01@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
The PIRANHA coil is finally going ;-))
For primary tuning, I set up the signal generator to frequency sweep
from 100kHz to 110kHz.
This gave me a nice graph to show the primary frequency:
One "nice cable position" gave me 102.5kHz with is close enough :-)
I then bolted it all together to finish it up (still need to poly
coat the secondary coil):
Here it is doing 25 inch arcs at 1/2 power:
I can't run full power indoors. I loose about 10% in spark length
due to the hidden primary (lower coupling) but it wants to arc "too
far" already :-D
So it turned out real good!!
