Re: More power and less resistance
The work I have done would suggest that the secondary's
resistance is not
a major factor. There are limits but I would spend my time working on
other areas and not worry about the secondary wire size. Most people
20-24 wire with no problems. I would think as long as your wire does
actually start to get warm you would be fine. The spacing is a valid
but perhaps there are other tricks you could use there. If you are
on some type of machine, perhaps you could drap a length of wire between
the new and last winding to act as a spacer as you went along...
A good point. Even NST driven TC's are running with several hundred
watts input, of which at least half must get into the primary. If even
10% of that were lost in the secondary, it would get quite warm. If 10%
were lost, it shouldn't have much effect on the output.
