Re: [TCML] SISG success
Does anyone know how close the SIDACs are to the to the edge? I don't have
enough 5A SIDAC's for my 5 boards but plenty of 1A ones.
My impression is that they might not last if the coil is a small high

- If you do not want to exceed the 800 A limit, the only way to pump
more energy into the system is, to increase the supply voltage. Of
course you need to increase the inductance of the primary circuit in
From my experience, I'd take Terry Fritz's "guesstimated" extrapolated
800A peak instantaneous current limit very seriously if you want the
and IGBTs to last more than a minute.
Of course, the "new" SIDACs and bricks might survive more!
