I understand how bang size relates to voltage stress on a secondary, and how
break rate effects a proportional reduction of bang size in a RSG coil.
How does voltage stress resulting from bang size affect the secondaries in a
Put another way, if a given secondary (in a single-secondary system) can
handle a bang size
of xJ before it starts having problems, what happens when there are two of
>From playing around with JavaTC, the coupling doesn't decrease with a
decrease in primary
inductance (assuming a pancake primary), but I would still expect the
transfer to be less per secondary than it would be if it was in a primary
question is by how much.
I want to say each secondary will see 1/2 of the energy, but from reading
that a twin system
is more efficient, I am also inclined to suppose that each secondary would
receive sqr2/2 of
the energy it would normally see in a single-secondary system.
What's your take on this?
