SSTC progress, results

Initial runs show that the full-bridge works very nicely, even beyond 3 amps DC input. After that, my variacs' current scale ends. The 10A fuse didn't blow. :o) I'm using a big secondary made of two polypropylene buckets with bottoms sticked together. #28 wire, maybe 20cm diameter, and about 40cm high, f_res around 120kHz.


Setup:


Full-bridge section:

Some results (pics & videos):

Streamer length is approx. 10cm / 4", at an input of 220Vac 1...3A (different interruptor settings).
