Re: Sync motor question

Hi John, All,
    Can your synchronous rotary gap be easily modified to fire only on
one polarity of the AC voltage waveform?  Suppose this were possible.
Suppose you fired on one polarity and then the other without changing
anything else.  Would the output streamer be of a different length or
character in each case?  Assumption: The firing takes place at the
peak for each case.
