Primary Q
Hi Richard,
As you know, I've been discussing Pulse Discharge capacitors with a couple of
manufacturers. This is in order to get a quantity discount and the best design
possible.
One question arises that I don't have an answer for. What is the Q of a high Q
primary. The heart of the question is really this; When the primary is charged
by one pulse, how long does it take it to ring down? What is its time constant?
Inquiring capacitor design engineers want to know. I realize that this will
differ with the construction of each circuit. I guess what I'm asking is what
is the Q of yours? Gauging by your video, your would be typical of a high Q
primary, maybe even better than most. The reason that this is asked of course
is that the better the Q, the higher the resonate rise. Therefore a higher
voltage rated capacitor is required for a higher Q primary.
Any feedback you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
