    The left one aka "sucky-I" is the air-cored one. I measured the "inductance" of the primary (with the secondary...

    [SOLVED]Closed: Re: Transformer: current loss

    Klaus, I didn't say that I expected same power with same current. I said the voltage is stepped down by a factor of 10, but the current stays the same i.e. there is a ten fold power loss which...

    [SOLVED]Closed: Transformer: current loss

    Hi friends.

    I have now two transformers which both suɔʞ at what they do, so I have named the left as "sucky-I" and the right as "sucky-II" (the black tape is self-vulcanizing rubber, excellent at...

    I think I just have come up with a extremely bad design that is extremely lossy.

    Hi arajur



    Here is a picture of one. I use one to measure primary voltage and a second one to measure secondary voltage.

    OK, I will try to rephrase my question.

    Hi friends.

    I would like to know the loss (power/energy) in a air-core pulse transformer of my own fabrication.

    Closed: Re: Bridge Rectifier won't Rectify

    Yes that's what I did, but I wrote the opposite., sorry. And now I changed caps because the 1n blew up it was only 3KV. So I found some old USSR caps of 22p 12KV put those across the 100M, and a...

    So I made a 100:1 with 100M+100n/1M+1n and it also works. I was actually using 100:1 until this voltage rise thing threw me off in the wrong direction. The top resistor is made of glass and the...

    Well, I tried adding capacitance (ranging from 33p to 2.2n) across the 100M, and what I saw on the scope was that the full 6Vp-p from the signal generator appeared across the lower 100K resistor,...

    I don't think there is one

    You only get the current after integration, see post #20
  12. Closed: Re: Pulse transformer output measured vs. calculated?

    Whats the reasoning for that the ramp should not be there? The trace in post #20 is the integrated result, the raw di/dt output is as below scope trace and does not show any DC offset. Here is a...

    Here is the revised measurement with my newly compensated voltage dividers

    155064

    X-axis is nanoseconds
    "hi" = primary
    "lo" = secondary

    This is measured with 30Kohm load on the secondary.

    if you use a resistor instead of a reactive component e.g. the transformer, the ringing will gradually diminish with increasing resistance, until about 1.5Kohm when the pulse becomes a smooth...

    There is no square pulse anywhere, what you are seeing is the pulse.

    I calculated Z for the secondary winding to about 60ohm, and the resistive load is 30Kohm (2nd measurement) - does that qualify as hi-Z?



    Could you suggest a specific one?

    Hi Brian.



    It is a single pulse, here is the oscillogram from the primary side, you have to multiply v/div with 10.000 (TEN THOUSAND) to get the correct voltage.

    The three oscillograms were side by side when I submitted the post, but now I see they are on top of each other, so the original post has lost it's meaning. So let's start again from the beginning.

    Hi friends!

    I made a simple diode bridge rectifier, except that each diodes is made up of ten STTH812 in series, and those are ultrafast 1200V 8A diodes with 100nS rrt and 400nS frt. But it...

    For voltage, a resistive 1000:1 voltage divider 100M/100K. For current, a Rogowski coil.
