sharing it here, only coppied the vital info, left out the personal stuff
I tried to overcharge some caps and see if the internally discharge, but then I noticed,
a disruptive discharge in L2.
The spike induces a increase in resonant voltage in L3 (blue sine wave) when properly tuned to the negative maximum.
Nelson, it's not a internal breakdown of the cap I guess (sparkgap), or is it?
I attached the schematic I used for this test. and scope shots.
blue is resonant L3, red is L2 spike , and blue square wave from L1
It shows the discharge happening before L1 is turned on. Not expected this.
About your test just a some rectifications :
In L2 you have the disruptive discharge, but remove the cap in L2 between the ground .The L1 should have a cap in parallel. The diode should be placed by the anode in the ground terminal of L1, the cathode goes to one terminal of L2 with the other terminal of L2 connected to a capacitor by one of terminal and the other to the "float point" in source .
The L3 is your secondary coil.
Try follow this conf and you will succeed duplicate the circuit .
'm just try help you reach more fast the objective of put the circuit to work ,after that you will need to tune the circuit , and that part is the more difficulty part :) . One step at time
made a drawing of you directions, and I noticed, you didn't use the center tap of the L1 coil, as you showed in the circuit you posted in the forum. What I heard you say is drawing NR1 connected from gnd of L1 not using center tap
drawing NR 2 has a cap over half of the coil, but diode between L2 and ground
drawing NR3 is both diode and Cap connected to center tap.
Is this diffence, because you are not allowed to speak the full truth due to the contract you signed? I can imagine you are not allowed to speak if this... or maybe a mistake? asking because i noticed the difference.
ust try made like i advice you really . The circuit could work in different manners and i'm try guide you in basic after that you could modify them if pretend but please try follow my instructions and you will able to duplicate the same results i did . After that for sure your will want modify the circuit or even improve them , but by now try like i explain please ;).
I'm sharing without any restrictions really .
I Will do today a new diagram , more detailed to be more easy be understand the circuit after that Will be more easy to you follow me
I see the difference in the parallel cap to the center tap of L1, and the diodes to the negative.
this one is slightly different than the one posted on the forum.
Yes this diagram is more clean and without errors
