Hello all,
Is this correct at all?, I dont have the parts to build such a thing but id like to see if it works. an for me, it shows i am learning about planing ahead an not doing lots of things but then going... How did i do that! lol

No there are no values in this - thats because i have not figured them out just yet.
I found that series charging caps has less an impact on my generator an it recovers faster than if the caps where in parallel or a high uF. So i want to capture the HV in low uF caps then parallel the combined uF for a larger current an lower voltage.
Most i can say for the input is its around 240v at 300-500 mA from the AC side. An no this is not British house mains - just happen to be producing it to my surprise an painful experience.

Can i put this into reverse? i want lower voltage higher current out - not volts doubled. ^_^

@Lykenth

George has some cool stuff going on. He lives about 10 km from me. He powers all of his electrolysers this way. By adding the series cap, with the parallel cap, you set the output and thus take away runaway voltage / short to mains (as I understand it).

You can see George's water torch uses it, in this pic:

I have personally used his torch cutting steel, a commercial sized unit. Very impressive, probably the world's most serious Brown's gas machine. I was easily able to cut through 1/2" solid steel deck bridge (tressle) beams with his unit, and it does not produce the toxic black smoke associated with large oxyacetylene. We operated them on 20 kilowatt diesel generators while dismantling original WWII bridges near Vancouver BC.

Cheers

Hi Lykenth
I am also looking for a high current stepdown transformer made with caps.The top scematic you show-have you tried it out?
I am not haveing much luck finding such a device that converts voltage to current useing caps


swim at 90 degrees to the current and gain speed in two directions

Hmm -looking at your scematic again i see you have a dead short at the end of the cap bank,--the bridge from negative to positive.

Hi Lykenth
Keep this thread going mate as i think this would hold a lot of interest-i am looking for this sort of a setup.

Sorry for that i have been messing with another version of this - the C.V.D.R.T - its in development as per usual. but know this - i have found that if you put high voltage into a very high uF bank of caps, its not bothered by the high voltage seemingly. an you get a high current output from the caps.

that odd wire that seems like a short - its not its just the caps in series.
