Making a DIY type high voltage AC power supply from 40 W soldering iron, 220 V AC to 12 or 6 V AC step down transformer and 5 A fuse. These things are ALL connected in series to the 220 V AC mains.
Am I doing this "high voltage AC generator" circuit right?
I am making a high voltage alternating current power supply of 10 - 15 kV enough to generate strong electrostatic influence on deionized water to construct a water bridge and investigate its physical properties for a research.
The circuit consists of a 40 W soldering iron (used as dummy load or sacrificial load in case the transformer fails), 5 A Fuse, and finally a step-down transformer of 220 VAC to 12 VAC or 6 VAC with center tap all connected in series to the AC mains 220 VAC
BTW I am at a beginner level when it comes to controlling high voltages.
