Resonance Research has flybacks (model FLY-50) that will operate up to 450
watts for short duty cycles such as solid state TC service.  These are
designs based on the old style TV 30 kV flybacks, but contain nearly 1,500
additional turns per unit.  Also special core material and large core
window.  Can be operated in oil or SF6 for higher outputs.  They can be
driven up to 50 kV DC output directly without the need for multipliers.  We
use a 24 - 36  volt power oscillator to drive them.
