Ok so I spent 28$ on some stuff for my project from digikey , a hip4081a hbridge mosfet driver capable of up to 1Mhz, im gonna aim for 500-800khz area although the arduino max pwm frequency is like 32khz so maybe ill try that first or have the arduino control something faster
for the hv hbridge(I think these will work, maybe without even a heatsink)
3 22uf 450v caps and 1 2a 1000v bridge rectifier
im gonna try an aircoiled inductor to allow me to change the rms into the multipler
from ebay I got some 1n4007 1000v diodes, and some 1000v .01uf caps so ill start with a 5 stage multiplier
hopefully ill be able to get this thing adjustable from 240v to 3.2kv which I guess is a good start,
how many multiplying stages do you think is practical? I think with my high frequency I should be good if I did 15 total to get me to 10kv
all ill need now is some current limiting resistor in the 10-20k range, disconnect switch, rubber tape....
think id need a bleeder resistor from the hv output? Or since the caps are .01uf it'll dissipate quickly?
hopefully ill be able to measure it too, I remember a friend has one of those hv adapters for a multimeter so I could actually get a read on it
