-7.5Kv Portable Generator





Introduction: -7.5Kv Portable Generator

  ...What did I Make? Here is a small project I built myself; the project is a portable -7.5Kv generator. I made this just to express and develop my curiosity for high voltages. I recieved my parts from http://http://www.goldmine-elec.com/ and those parts where the module itself, the mains switch, the terminated extention cord, and the clear project box. The tools I used where a soldering iron, to 'well' solder and 'shrink' the heat shrink, and a drill, to drill a hole for power output and GND.   ...How does it work? It runs of mains power and the high voltage is generated by a special transformer in the module. The module is so efficient that even when running for hours very little heat is produced! I first got the idea for this proect by surfing the web and I found the module. Then I wondered what could I do with -7.5Kv which spurred many ideas, like fraklin bells. Also my project design was a constant throughout this entire project except for the addition of the mains switch.   ...Where did I make it? I mad the portable generator in my basement lab which is dirty as one could see from the coffe stain on the table.    ...What did I learn? I learned more about high voltage electricity and how it interacts with the enviorment and other components. Throughout the experiment there where no challenges for it was a very simple but intresting build. Also if I had to do this again I would add an indicator LED and I would introduce some way to control the output voltage... a pot maybe?   >>>This is an entry for the Make-To-Learn contest so I would appresiate a vote and since this is my first instructable I would appreciate feedback, thanks!

    bro can u make this available without the download option i.e. free to all

    Nice work, BeamNeuron. I'd like to know which applications can give to this device.

    Some applications can be high voltage lighting EX. CFl's and camera flash tubes, high voltage EX. Franklin bells, small, high frequency sparks, and a negative ion generator.

    Thanks I'll probablly add a more detailed explanation...
