Simple High Voltage Flyback inverter [without feedback coil]

Step 6: The schematic

This is the schematic for your inverter circuit.
It will run on a 12-20V DC power supply (may also be a battery).

I'm using a 12V adapter which somehow gives me 17V output, and when connected it drops to 15V due to the internal resistance.

As you can see, we're using a side of the HV coill as feedback for the Gate on the MOSFET.
It will couse some kind of delay between each pulse which is sent to the primary coil.

For some reason wall jacks always output way more volts than they say they will. I think it's just shoddy manufacturing. It could be that they're designed for a really specific load though

If the reciprocals are outputting ~169.6 volts, that is perfectly normal. You are measuring the peak voltages, not the RMS (Root-Mean Square) voltage. RMS is essentially the average of the absolute value of the AC waveform. It is literally defined as the equivalent voltage/current/power delivered to a resistive load, such as a heater or Edison lamp. Also they are not designed as labratory power supplies, so they are crude in the fact that they have high tolerances.

You should add a few TVS diodes, MOVs, or at least some zener diodes between the gate and drain of the MOSFET, to prevent a high voltage transient from destroying the fragile Metal Oxide Layer between the gate and the rest of the Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor.

can you please help this won't work!
