Re: High Voltage Transformer

Hi Nuke?,

Do you have a first name? My suggestion for this would
be a 120:1 potential transformer. That would put out
14.4 kV with a 120 volt input and although most PTs
are rated around 1.5 kVA, they will easily handle se-
veral times that for intermitent duty. You could also go
with a "small" pole pig distribution transformer that's
rated at 14.4 kV on the high voltage side. You can
either run it on 240 volts or 120 volts input. Some
plate transformers may also fit this description but
are generally hard to find in voltages that high.
Just remember that these type of transformers require
external ballasting especially if you running a very
low resistance load or a short circuit on their out-
