Kaizer DRSSTC IV – a high impedance primary circuit experiment

A new article has been added that describes the thoughts, design, construction and test of a very high impedance primary circuit QCW DRSSTC, where the voltage ramp is coming straight from half wave rectified mains supply and a mains synced interrupter is used to trigger at the right interval.

The article covers the fall pits and strange behaviour of Tesla coils driven in this manner.

The project is highly experimental and the results were not as satisfying as expected, but problems with switching transients was a much bigger issues than initially thought of.
