I have a power supply that can supply around -60 kV DC and 10 mA. This power supply provides energy to a device known as a fusor. A fusor utilizes a low current and a high voltage to ionize a gas and accelerate the plasma ions toward the center of the vacuum chamber.
However, my issue is that the fusor will pull a very high current (100 mA) for around 30 seconds to ionize the gas. Afterwards, it settles back to 10 mA. Unfortunately, my power supply can only supply up to 10 mA and cannot supply that 100 mA draw during the first few seconds.
To combat this issue, I was considering using an inductor. Would this work? Also, what would the specs of such an inductor be?
