Scrap Yard IGBTs and MOSFETs from Solar Inverters, Welding Machines and Induction Cookers

A look at a bag of IGBTs and MOSFETs that I quickly salvaged from industrial electronics. Found in induction cookers, solar inverters, welding machines, car and battery charges. It can also be other common high power electronics with switching inverters. Discussion of salvaging IGBTs/MOSFETs: https://highvoltageforum.net/index.php?topic=2117.0 These TO-247 IGBTs can be used in a DRSSTC Tesla […]

50 kW Sedecal SHF-530 X-ray High Voltage Generator Inverter Teardown

This Sedecal SHF-330, with HF meaning High Frequency, was originally a 37.5 kW x-ray high voltage generator. It later received an upgrade, to a Sedecal SHF-530, which is a 50 kW 500mA x-ray high voltage generator. This x-ray generator comes in 3 different versions. Line powered drawing all power directly from mains, 20-50 kW. Capacitor

8000FPS Slow Motion Tesla Coil Spark Formation and Collapsing Hot Spots

Slow motion Tesla Coil recordings of SSTC sparks. Recorded at 8000 frames per second and replayed at 15-30 frames per second. Notice the step leader, known from natural lightning strikes and the hot spots that might be forming from collapsing plasma channels. Join the discussion at High Voltage Forum about these high speed video recordings
