...would it be possible to construct a "low-voltage"
Marx generator using SIDACs or MOVs or something
instead of the traditional spark gaps in each stage?
With a dozen or so stages, such a thing might be able
to create a couple of kV from the 120-volt AC line.
Further, if such a thing *did* work, it would just beg
to be connected to a very small SGTC, with the caps in
the Marx doubling as the cap for the TC. Granted,
this would probably not provide for a coil with
continuous output, but it would be interesting
This seems perfectly possible. Equivalent to instead of
using a single primary capacitor and a multiple spark gap,
alternating the capacitors with the gaps.
