Has anyone tried using the secondary of an auto ignition coil as a
charging inductor for a small coil?
They are 10-30 H (depending on who measured it, etc.) They've got the
I was wondering about the current handling. Typically, they seem to
have a DC resistance of some 10 kOhm or more, and if you're driving
from, say, a NST with an RMS output current of 30 mA, that works out to
about 9-10 Watts dissipation (because I've not got a spice model of the
actual charging current, etc.)
Or, alternately, any source for 10 H inductors that can hold off 20kV?
Short of winding my own. 200 or so turns on a 4 cm diameter core with
mu=5000 would do it. Have to wind in 20 turn chunks to keep the voltage
rating, reasonable, but that's doable.
