Designing the power supply for an radiation detector, need to supply up to 1500V at 2 mA from mains (170 Vdc).
I've largely considered a flyback converter, but cannot find a flyback transformer with a gain of N=~16 (for a gain of 8 at 50% duty cycle) rated for 1500V at the output winding.
Looked into charge pumps/voltage multipliers some but not in depth yet.
Also just recently learned about CCFL inverter transformers, but still need some time to understand them better.
This project requires a small size and weight, so using a large transformer is not preferred.
What are other ways to step up voltage which I may look into?
