I have been running two MOT's in series with 1/2 wave doublers on each
output then resonant charging with great success. I use 14 1N5408's in
series for each diode string. Transformers have the shunts removed. I have
no ballast on the primary, just the charging choke and rotary controlling
I do have caps and resistors across each diode, but when I build up the
second and third units I am not going to fit these components. All the
diodes came from the same lot.
The D-queuing diode is UF5408's, 30 in series with no caps or resistors
I am going to full wave doublers next.
Hope this helps and good luck with your build.
