Inductance Issue HELP!!!!
Hey All .......
Finally got my power cabinet all together and the new capacitor made ..
I ran the system ( piggie ) and experienced an anomoly that I cant figure out
as i increase the voltage to the piggie ( 0 - 150 V) the current draw
but when i start to increase the voltage past the 150 V ( 150 -280V )
current draw begins to reduce back down to around 5 amps ( at 150V current
A ) (( somewhat of a linear drop))
the control cabinet contains 2 1256 D powerstat variacs in paralell with a
parallelling choke ... 2 E core inductors individually switched for varied
direct short reading ( plugged directly into the wall socket 240 V ) are 33
10A this should give me aproximately 43 amps usable current to the pig...
why am I seeing this drop in current as the voltage increases?? is there some
inductance issues causing a major phase shift ??
