Re: [TCML] My now formerly "breadboard" interrupter for my 304er VTTC.

Thanks Fuzzy.

Hi Antonio,
Doing this in the zero crossover detection part of the circuit changed the
trigger time by giving it a longer lead time, instead of being "spot" on.
This is an advantage of achieving longer and straighter "swords" when you
are pulsing a VTTC, using a level shifted power supply. In essence, it
gives a longer ramp up time of a level shifted sine wave. The original
circuit triggers off a normal AC sine wave and it has a shorter ramp up
time and results in shorter, wandering swords, when using on a level
shifted power supply, which most people are using on VTTC's.

I made some attempts to modify the zero crossover part, to trigger off a
shifter, but was mostly unsuccessful, was able to do basic test, but I also
experienced all kinds of stability problems in the rest of the interrupter
circuit. So I came up with this just by experimenting on the breadboard.
The interrupter from EVR, I did a different way.

I hope this rambling makes sense, I am by no means am expert in circuitry
or our coils. Just a determined enthusiast to achieve the best I can for a
great running VTTC and learn things along the way.

For some more information, me and John recently went back and forth on a
tangent to this thread linked below. It is directly related to this in more
detail. I will admit a lot rambling and long winded, with some more scope
pictures of the differences and some video links also running. So if you
have some time...
