Re: [TCML] Pole pigs

My experience with case grounded equipment was that I needed to lift the grounding for my coil to work. I had these 25kvdc GE capacitors that were case ground or (h2) and when they were on the grass I couldn’t get the coil to work when I built this rack system with the Capacitors lifted on rubber wheels the coil worked. Not absolutely sure if this played a part but I did see small arcs come from the case to the rack on my last performance.

So I am well aware of safety issues and the dangers of distribution transformers. I have a distribution transformer I’m wanting to wire up and eventually use on my Tesla coil once the weather outside gets better. My question is exactly how to wire it up. It is a single bushing transformer so it has one high leg bushing H1 and the other end of the high side is bonded to the tank so the tank is H2. My plan is to feed it with 240v to both the low side inputs and just leave the neutral leg alone... one question though since the tank is H2 do I need to remove the bonding strap that bonds the tank case to the neutral? Also I plan on ballasting the transformer with a couple large choke transformers I got out of a 30kva battery backup system.
