Subject: Re: NST/OBIT current limiting (fwd)

Hello, I've been 'playing' with my 15kV 30mA NST and mine seems to 
behave like 7.5 - 0 - 7.5 kV with 10.5 kOhm resistance and 800 Henrys
of inductance in each leg.
My NST is rated for 230v 50Hz and draws 2A rms typ. (no 
'resonant-charging etc.) and the core begins to saturate at 240v rms.
Treat an NST as a normal transformer with HUGE secondary leakage 
BTW for my NST using resonant charging ( Cp = 6n4) the theoretical Q 
is 12 including 2 x 10kOhm ballast resistors, 12 x 15kV rms = 250 kV pk.
