[TCML] MOT Measurements

Hi Bart,

- Thank you very much for clarifying this.

- The voltage obviously is very close to my measured value of 3675 
Vrms  :-))

- Very similar to NSTs and OBITs which have a much larger secondary 
inductance of course.

- Yes, indeed. Thank you.

- I am not so experienced in simulations as you are. Therefore I 
would like to accept your generous offer to run the simulation with 
my MOT data: no-load-output-voltage = 2232 Vrms, dc-resistance of 
secondary winding = 70 Ohms, calculated secondary inductance = 30,4 
H, all the other parts were copied from Piranha II.

- I first disconnected the diodes and all the other components. Only 
the MOVs (2500 Vrms) were soldered to the secondary winding of the 
MOT. They remained cold.  

Then I connected the Piranha II circuit to the MOT and increased the
number of MOTs until the stayed cold. A string of 3675 Vrms was 
necessary now. OK?

Take care,
