Some of you are asking me to post an instructable about how to make an high voltage power supply to power the Marx Generator on this instructable. Wel...
Depending where you live, get the things that will be suitable to your mains power..If your country uses 110v or 120v, get the things as listed:34 1N4...
Here are the schematics, it is really easy to make, however, you need to make 34 stages of capacitors and diodes if you live in 110v or 120v area, or ...
I don't know how I can explain how to make this, but I will try my best.First, glue the capacitors together to make solder a whole lot easier, Or you ...
Then start soldering on the diodes onto the capacitors like you see in the schematic. And trim off the excess leads as you go along.Also, make sure yo...
After you had soldered all the diodes onto the capacitors, check your connections closely:Are all the diodes facing in one direction? If not, change t...
And finally, solder on the fuse, (safety resistor,) and the wires. It might be a good idea to cover all of that in hot glue, to prevent the wires brea...
Well, there you go, a high voltage power supply for the Marx Generator!Also, it is high recommended you to put this whole voltage multiplier in a proj...
Best luck to you for making a Marx Generator and the high voltage power supply!You don't have to use the voltage multiplier just only for the Marx Gen...
