You haven`t built enough momentum for suspense, but so far you have got
one of us confused.
Is the 1000uF cap merely a storage and smoothing cap? @250V?
Then dump this 250V into a 10nF cap. I`d be surprised if you can get
breakout from that. It`s 0.3uJ
About your SISG coils.
You *could* have worked around the problems of syncronising to the mains
frequency by going full DC, with resonant charging of the tank cap. Like
I did, and got full flexibility from 1-1200+ BPS.
Another note, When you removed the SIDAC`s and replaced them with
opto`s, you put the individual IGBT in grave danger. I doubt it would work.
The reason you can stack the SISG primary modules lies in the fact that
the SIDAC`s clamp the voltage across each IGBT until they turn on. After
turn on, they do so themselves.
Opto`s can`t do that.
