Re: Diode Rectifier stacks

Hi Ted
Syd Klinge's "Cauac" DC coil runs 100kW and uses a LOT of 1N4007's. No charging inductor though and I suspect fast diodes should be used instead for the deQ-ing diode string.
Pics on my site from his visit to Australia recently.

Building a DC coil from MOT with resonant charging thru choke.

Not planning to use equalising caps and resistors across the 1N4007's but
rather adding enough diodes so that each is running at 45% of rated PIV.
Anybody had success with this approach or otherwise
