Output from flyback transformer question?
I scrounged and old crt flyback and I have set up a small transistor-driven oscillator to put power into the primary. It works too, but I don't know if the output is AC or DC. I think it may have a rectifier in it, but I'm not sure. Is there an easy test to determine whether it is AC or DC? I'm planning to use it for a tesla coil, but I want to know the output wave form first. Some sort of pulsed DC would as be acceptable for my uses as well. Does anyone know what I can do to determine the output wave?
(PS: I don't have an oscilloscope)
