  • You should remove the metal clip that holds the core closed, because it's made of iron and it wastes power

  • Yesssssssssssss mad scientist time mhahahahaha.

  • 2:42 the smoke is coming because the metal pin holding core together is heating due to inductance of primary. That is why you have current draw without arc. In second transformer there is no metal pin so it is not heating that much.

  • Will zvs work with microwave transformer?

    Maciej KwiatkowskiMaciej Kwiatkowski4 napja
    • No, because it's a mains transformer - it's made for low frequency (50 or 60 Hz). This circuit operates at tens of kilohertz if not more, so you need a transformer with a ferrite core.

  • 6:51 in fact, the inductor that you created in the flyback core causes the output to be alternating current because the original primary of the flyback has several components to rectify, while the one you created does not have any component to rectify, so the output is alternating current. you can see that by the noise of the arc, which is a very high frequency in alternating current that makes almost no noise and is silent, if the output was in direct current, the noise of the arcs would be loud and annoying

    RetroGamerCXRetroGamerCX5 napja
    • You are not right, the original primaries don't have rectifiers in them. The rectifying diodes are on the high voltage secondary coil. There is still a chance he had AC on the output because those diodes could have failed short-circuit due to overvoltage.

    • and the arc color is yellow and purple, (yellow means high current, and purple means high voltage), if the output was in direct current the arcs would be a little bluish white

  • Back in my younger days, I built a circuit that drove a flyback transformer like this. And connected the output (roughly 12KVAC) to a 20-stage Cockroft-Walton multiplier built out of doorknob capacitors and microwave oven diodes. It arced a solid _10 inches._ (Around 250KVDC.) Part of the multiplier array disconnected while I was playing around with it, and I discovered the circuit break when it arced several inches to my hand, which was rendered numb for several hours and ached for a few days afterward.
