Re: 3rd harmonic trap

Original poster: Terry Fritz <teslalist@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi Malcolm,

In my case, the added LC's and impedances are so far remote form the primary's normal situation that it should not be a problem. They only significantly act in the case of a short or streamer hit. So far it seems to work perfectly!

Of course, one can get into a lot of mess with such things too. Thus is why I worry that the 3rd harmonic filters and such might do something that is "excessively interesting" :o)) I am not sure what Jolyon will try there. But the physical parts to do it are pretty easy simple to add. Just a matter of what actually happens nad if it is good or bad...

Hi Terry,
           It's worth considering that with a bundle of LC circuits
of various Q's interconnected in that fashion there will be
significant interactions - so significant in fact that one might
actually be able to model the entire network as a single LCR entity.
To get cascaded filters to work requires strict port impedance
matching and some of the impedances in the TC circuit will be rather
ill defined under some circumstances. I suspect there is little point
to the original poster's question.
