Re: Transformers, Wattage and some
I think Case 1 would work better. You would have less losses in primary
resistance. Although in Case 2 you would have a larger primary capacitance
and a smaller primary inductance. This means that the secondary voltage would
be higher in case 2. The arc isn't related to voltage alone so I don't really
know. For me I would go with whichever case I can get the best and cheapest
I have never used that many NST together so I don't have much experience in
that although it sounds ok from what you have said.
