4 Kilowatt Pancake Coil Tests
Initial tests at around 3000 watts.
Tests at 4KW with Military Quenched Gap. 2 MOT's in series, P & S, 220V input. Approx 3000 watts. .032 mfd
Discharge is a fiery ribbon. Discharge limited to 6-8".
Note how the sparks form in ribbon patterns amidst an orange-yellow firey haze.
Insulators start to burn on gap - with fewer Spark Gap sections the quenching does not occur properly
and the output voltage decreases...
Still a very hot brush discharge!
After some adjusting secured the hot arc again...
and then the mica cap burned out!! :(
"We've got more power than that!"
