How do I use new chip-style microwave oven transformers ?
I'm working on a microwave oven transformer based AC welder. Newer microwaves don't use classic steel and copper transformers but rather something much lighter with a few beefy electronics that look like transistors.
My question is how does one manipulate these new-style electronic trasformers (if that's what they're called)?
Imagine all the wonderful things one could to with such a light-weight but powerful circuit. Maybe it could run a laser, welder, or do voltage boosting for renewable electricity systems with long cable runs...
