> Hi Bart and Herwig,

> In the top graph, ignore the long oscillation when the diodes stop
> conducting. That is a modeling error. However there are some pretty
> high speed voltage spikes on the output that might have caused
> Herwig's medical transformer to fail. the current never goes about 1
> amp and there is nothing special there.
> The second graph shows the voltage on the capacitors and the third
> graph is the total capacitor voltage. It is wild because the
> capacitor voltage levels bounce around depending on the voltage when
> the coil fires and where the voltages end up after firing.
> Maybe this helps or just makes it more confusing :D Feel free to pass
> this onto the list too but I wanted to get you the attached files.
> Best Regards,
