High voltage transformer current limiting? Answered
I have modified a MOT to output 10kV as a Tesla coil power supply but when testing I found that there was a very low voltage (maybe 2kV).
The primary resistance was measured at 0.2ohm much less than the inductive ballast I've used to current limit. Is the voltage being drawn away from the primary to the ballast?
If so how can I resolve this (keep in mind even with the ballast it still needs further current limiting)?
