Original poster: "Loudner, Godfrey by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <gloudner-at-SINTE.EDU> Hi Ed The coiler with the 15KV/60MA and the 12KV/120MA wanted to connect the 120V primaries in series for 240V operation. Then he wanted to connect the secondaries in parallel. I think that his intention was to reduce current draw from the service mains, and to get more current for a tesla coil. If the primary impedances are different, then the 240V will not be shared evenly by the primaries connected in series. This in turn will cause voltages different from the ratings to appear at the secondaries. There are potential problems with phasing together transformers which are not identical. I was attempting a partial matching of the two NSTs on the secondary sides. My previous calculation did not take into account the secondary impedance of the 15KV/60MA. The new calculation gives a 62,500 ohm resistor to produce a phased combination of 12KV/168MA. This calculation assumes that the primary impedances are equal, and therefore is simply an educated quess.
