Re: Bi-Polar DRSSTC
Very nice work Chris.
I have a few questions after watching your video.
1) Have you scoped the controller circuit to see what BPS you are running
the DRSSTC at? It does indeed scream!
2) What IGBTs are you using? I couldn't tell if it was a half bridge or
This is of interest to me because when I run my DRSSTC at that screaming
BPS I usually, (and quite undramatically) blow my IGBT's.
I can run for an hour at lower BPS. Yes, I do push the coil and
IGBT's and certainly duty cycle is a factor, but there may be more going
Great video and it was nice to meet you at Cheesehead.

This has to be the loudest coil I have, it screams?!
Not really a power hog as only takes 6 amps at 150 volts, no
