Doug,From what I can see from the videos, you are using a thin piece of copper for your pickup. Have you done any comparison between that, wires or gauze. Do you see an increase in current or voltage ?
What is the composition of your rollers and belt ? Derek On 22-Dec-15 2:34 PM, doug wrote:
Hello Derek;Thank you for your comments and including a link to my youtube video. I have included a link to my youtube page so you can take a look at some of my VanDeGraaff projects. I think all VDG builders are using the wire or screen type pickups on their VDG’s, I have found something MUCH better. You can see it in operation in some of my videos.https://www.youtube.com/user/dr043042#p/u https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCWAH-J091c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoS7sOy2Src Thank you again, Doug J. -----Original Message----- From: ExtremeElectronics.co.uk Sent: Friday, December 18, 2015 11:35 AM To: Tesla Coil Mailing List Subject: Re: [TCML] Ignition coil driver You can get about 300W from 8 of them though.. http://www.extremeelectronics.co.uk/electronic/v8-tesla-engine/ Derek On 18-Dec-15 2:30 PM, Jim Lux wrote:On 12/18/15 4:39 AM, doug wrote:Hello; I am looking for some information concerning Ignition coil HV supplies. I am using 120V mains through a light dimmer and wonder if there is something better and more robust than the dimmer? This Ignition coil HV supply will be a dual coil setup using a 25.0uf/370VAC motor run Cap.Not as cheap..any of the standard capacitor discharge electronic ignitions basically put 400V pulses into the coil to generate HV.6000 RPM in a 8 cylinder engine is 200 Hz typical energy per "pulse" is 100 mJ so 200 Hz is 20 W _______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list Tesla@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla_______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list Tesla@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla _______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list Tesla@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla
