Re: Sync 200BPS improvement, (short post !)
In a message dated 99-07-23 05:46:29 EDT, you write:
PS. I tried sims for many uneven spaced electrodes at high BPS, and
got poor power factor. Seems to agree with your findings John ?
I missed this PS before when I read your post. Yes, this does agree
with what I saw using the sync gap at high BPS (at least I know it
drew a lot of current, these were old tests before I was monitoring
the wattage and power factor). Thanks for this (sim) verification.
With a non -sync gap, at high BPS, with unequal spacings, I
obtained basically the
same result as with equal spacings. But some of the sparks appeared
more bolt-like, and seemed to reach out stronger at times. I should
mention that the non-sync, high BPS operation wasn't very efficient
in any case though. I think maybe non-sync operation ruins the power
factor in general? (due to the chaotic and unstable inductive kicking
and bucking) :)
