Re: [TCML] Overdriving NSTs
200%?? you put 240Vac into it? ouch you lucked out this
time...probably wont be so lucky the next time around...good chance you
stressed the insulation on the secondaries of the NST ...

Doubt very very seriously that the output voltage doubled. If
someone had the ambition he could run a curve of output voltage AND LINE
CURRENT! vs input line voltage up to the input voltage where the core
saturated. Runs of a few seconds wouldn't overhead the primary windings
enough to do damage. Results would be interesting. I would think the
results would be just about universal, for NST's at least, because the
guys build them for a price and won't waste any money on extra iron or
