Is this the right way to make a 2 MOTstack and is this the right way to ballast it with a MOT? for a tesla coil? Answered
I just want to be a 100% sure that i did this right before i plug this thing in, because i don't want to kill the transformers or myself :D
So if you guys could confirm that i did this right (or not and if not why) i might feel a bit more comfortable :)
thanks for all the help! love this community and tesla coils!
2 mots with the secondaries placed in series while the primaries are paralleled
1 mot with the secondary shorted (both ends to the core) and grounded to the mains ground
the neutral wire from the mains is directly connected to the 2motstacks first primary
while the hot wire from the mains is connected to the ballast it's primary and then to the 2motstacks first primary
finally i taped one 2000V terminal to the wooden box and the other 2000v terminal to a 4ft PVC pipe that acts as a chickenstick
Did i do this correctly?
here is the picture with explanation from what i did
