Recently my water heater's thermostat failed. It's just a simple mechanical one, with a piece of metal that "pops" and connects or disconnects the heating element. I would guess that what made it ...
With a powerful microwave oven transformer, big bright white arcs with more current are created. With small flyback transformers driven by a simple oscillator, at the same voltage, arcs are thinner, ...
Why is an arc management necessary in a circuit breaker?
I am repairing some ozone generators and one of them has a tower with a discharge path I can't seem to get rid of. Back in the heyday of television, my dad ran a side (hobby) business repairing bw ...
Out of curiosity, I have a question about high voltage electricity sources. Hypothetically, the requirements are that the source must be no larger than a water bottle (although smaller is better), and ...
I recently built a Fly-back Driver with a fly-back transformer and a primary voltage input of 12 volts and the arcs are about an inch long ( i don't know the exact output voltage because I don't have ...
