How can I build a robust long lasting high voltage generator?
What I need is system to output a minimum 6000 volts and cyclically spark an electrode. This is for a remote unmanned site and will use a 6V battery connected to a solar charger for the power supply. This is to keep a flame lit for the destruction of uncaptured biogas (methane)? The electrode would be mounted on a burner stack to reignite the gas if the flame blows out. So the output from the generator would need to be pulsed on a cyclical basis to deliver a recurring spark continuously 24/7.
The HV generator and battery would be housed in a weather protected enclosure.
