Re: Terry's DRSSTC - higher power testing

Original poster: Steve Ward <steve.ward@xxxxxxxxx>

Hey Terry,

Looks like its time to throw a secondary coil in there.  How could you resist??

All looks great.  Only thing i wonder about is your transmission line
from your main box to the primary circuit... adds a bit of leakage L.
How long do you plan on making those runs of wire?

500A would be really good for those size IGBTs i think.  My older
DRSSTC-1 setup used about 600A to get 48" i think (sorta hard to
remember).  Anyway, looking forward to see what happens with this
project ;-).

Oh, and you probably already talked about this, but how are you
monitoring the temp on the IGBTs?  Just a thermistor or something more

Anyway, Good luck with the "real" testing ;-)
