Flyback transformer question.? Answered

I have an urge to play with high voltage.  Maybe a Jacobs' Ladder, maybe a plasma speaker, maybe just make sparks and burn myself. Does the make / model of flyback transformer matter?  Or do they all connect the same way? For instance, would you recommend this model?

Flyback transformer problem?

I have recently dismantled an old CRT monitor i have had lying around for ages to get the flyback transformer. I have been trying to get the correct pins to using methods found on the internet none of which have seemed to work i have found what should be the primary coil and have applied the current and placed the high voltage output in front of each pin to try and find the high voltage ground, this has not worked so i have applied the current to all of the pins in every combination and still i am unable to get it to work. Please help me.

Need help to build a flyback driver.

Hi every one, I've been working for several weeks on a diagram of flyback driver referring to this video to get an electric arc which can handle a day turned on: Here is the assembly that the author gave me : And here is the assembly I'm working on : The RC1 capacitor is either a 630V 220nF MKP is a 1uF 630V. I've done and redone it on my breadboard but impossible to get anything. Could you help me to acheive this or tell me what are my mistakes. Thank you in advance.

I want to remove the core from a flyback transformer?

For experimental purposes i want to remove the ferrite core from a flyback transformer. I want to be able to remove it without damaging the primary or secondary windings. I don't care if the core is ruined. Someone suggested boiling the transformer in water.  Has this been successfully done or is this an untried suggestion?

Flyback powered Tesla Coil?

Hi. I am trying to build a Tesla Coil, and there are few thins I'd like to know. First, I built this PWM (made a few modifications, IRF530 MOSFET and 10nF ceramic caps instead) and connected it to a self wound primary of my fuh29A001V flyback, and it works perfectly, sparks and stuff. Can this power my Tesla Coil? Next, if it can work, how do I calculate capacitance needed for my tank capacitor? Miloš

How to troubleshoot a flyback driver?

I've been kicking myself for months now trying to get my flybacks to operate. It seems that no matter what driver I build, or how carefully I assemble it, the only thing I get is silence.

Flyback Transformer assistance requested

I am having problems with the flyback transformer. For primer on where I am at, following the tutorial to locate the 0v pin the voltage was win the specified range. The flyback is from a old monitor that was monochrome but was still working.  No datasheet could be obtained. 10 pins if it matters. I am following the struct on using the single transistor driver.  Specifically a 2n3055 from radio shack. Lets pretend i wouldn't waste your time if i didn't triple quadruple check the wiring first. using 24v dc power supply schematic and page i based my driver on.   i am not getting the high pitched noise from the flyback. i have 5w 220 resistor and a 5w 27 resistor . my resistance ratio is important. correct? since there is a voltage divider there. i know its vague but can someone give me some direction to work out my problems

Troubling Flyback Transformer Pins

Hello,       I'd like to request someone to share their knowledge about their "flyback" knowledge or experiences with me since I'm having trouble finding the primary coil pins with my flyback transformer. I'm constructing my own HV power supply and I decided to go through this tutorial.       I've read much on the web and found the 0v output pin of my flyback. The problem is .. I couldn't find the primary and secondary since I'm using an analog multimeter and the tutorials on the web are all digital..       When I test the pins with my multimeter set to ohm range of x1, I do not get a pair of 1 ohm pins but instead I got the result of "Continuity" when I test on following pins, they seems to be connected but none of the pins show to 1 ohm.. and thus I've adjust the Ohm Adjustment. The results are Continuity 1 : 1,2,6,8 Continuity 2 : 3,4,7,10 No Continuity: 5,9 Pin no 5 is 0v output..  I've attached the pin number diagram at photos... my drawing and actual pins.. Have you got any idea to find out the primary coil? I've also attach my driver from CFL.. Thanks

Question about a flyback's polarity Answered

Hello, I am confused with this flyback transformer I have. I have a pulsed DC input on the primary coil (pulses from 0 to 15V) and that creates high voltage in the secondary coil. When I connect that input in the opposite direction (wrong polarity) I don't get high voltage any more. The possible explanation for this is that the primary coil has a diode in series with it. Now, I'm confused by this because I tested if there actually Was a diode in there (by connecting a DC supply and a DC motor, in series with the coil) and the motor always works! (also tested with a halogen light) I put the coil in series with the motor to test if there is a diode inside. If there would be one inside, the motor should not work in one of the two cases, when I switch the pins of the primary coil. So, as the results of the test tell me: there is no diode in series with the primary coil. could it be possible that there is a diode in parallel with the primary coil? If that's not possible, how come the flyback is not working when I connect the polarity incorrectly? Could someone please help me out with this? Thanks, Electorials

Do avalanching diodes "latch up"?

While working and revising my flyback driver design, I had one of the 1N4148 diodes that I was using as protection get cooked!  (it seemed to fail short circuit) I have not tested to see if the MOSFET survived yet. Obviously the diode needs to react fast and handle avalanching energy well. Any suggestions? are some beefy schottky diodes suitable? Also, does making any ordinary diode go into that avalanche or zener reverse breakdown region cause it to potentially lock up and conduct for a period longer than the EMF spikes I'm dealing with? Or with any sort of hysteresis (like when using neon lamps)? Originally my wimpy glass 1N4148 diodes was wired in parallel directly across the MOSFET drain and source reverse biased. However, carefully examining this tesla coil schematic,it appears that there is both a forward biased diode in series with the MOSFETs, and another reverse biased diode(s) in parallel across the MOSFET & diode. It does not look like a bad idea given one the reverse biased diodes can shunt EMF spikes that are too large while the other isolates them from the MOSFET. My only concern is how lossy that would be at 12V operation.

Hello people!  I recently got my hands on a flyback transformer (that is, I finally got over it and got it out of the monitor :p ) And I want to make a flyback driver. I already have a normal wall wart hooked up backward. I was thinking that I could connect the wall wart to the flyback and create massive sparks.

Now its not working again and i think the flyback broke this time but im not sure.

Why won't my flyback transformer work? Answered

I have a flyback transformer that I pulled out of an old tv that I didn't use, and I have been trying to hook it up to a driver to get some arcs. The driver I am using is a basic driver that utilizes a NPN 2n3055 transistor and a couple of resistors. I am powering it off a 12V drill battery. Additionally I have checked the transistor with a multimeter and it checks out ok. As far as the coils go, I have tried using coils that I located on the flyback, and I tried winding my own on the exposed ferrite core. What happens is I hook it up to the power source and nothing happens, I don't even hear the high pitched whining noise that is characteristic of the high frequency driver. I don't know what to do, I have tried a lot of stuff. I'm starting to think that maybe I'm having power issues? All the instructables that I have seen use sealed lead-acid batteries which produce more current than my drill battery which is at least 12 amps. How much current is needed? Any suggestions to get this working would be well appreciated. Thanks :)    -Andrew
