Paul could you explain this a bit more fully - I'm using the output
of my push pull transformer to drive my coil as a magnifier.
secondary lll primary--- FETs---PWM
Where does your LC circuit go?
I've been looking at Rob's suggestion for using Schottky
diodes in series with the FET. 10A diodes are cheap,
have a low forward voltage and can handle 200A peak
currents. The low reverse voltage 30-45v doesn't matter
if FET and schottky are in // with a reversed fast
rectifier. Presumably the amount of snubbing can then
be safely reduced.
