I need to build a HV HF power supply to ionize gas. The specifications are 12V input voltage and 10kV output voltage @ 13.56MHz. I know this is not an easy task at all, since in this frequency area, all the paracitic capacitors and inductors have to be taken into account.
What I have tried to simulate yet is:
1.) Slayer Exciter: The problem here is, that the resonance frequency mostly depends on the parasitic capacitors and I don't reach such an output frequency at all if I want to use electrodes with a capacitance of some nF.
2.) Royer Converter:I tried to simulate the behaviour of a Royer Converter, but also with an output capacitance of a few pF, the frequency comes not in the needed range.
3.) Flyback Transformer: Most people use flyback transformers to generate high voltage for ionizing gas, but I think this would not work at all at this frequency, since the transformer is saturated.
Has anyone an Idea how this could be done, or is it impossible from 12V? If it's nearly impossible, has anyone a suggestions what could be done to generate this 10kV at a high frequency as possible.
Edit: I simulated now the class-E amplifier circuit and the switching behaviour works fine. The problem is, that I cannot put the input voltage too high to achieve a high output voltage, especially also because of the MOSFET. How could I go from here to increase the voltage to 10kV AC? Tesla magnifier? Another problem is the huge input power of around 1kW.
