coilgun coil with 2 wires to decrease resistance? Answered
after i finished my coilgun. i found that my coil which has a resistance of 3 ohms is not efficient enough for my 1920uf cap bank at 310v.
i've read that high resistance coils need high voltages and low capacitance from the capacitor banks. and that low resistance can use both high voltages and high bigger capacitor banks to increase the current and drain the capacitor more quickly so that the projectile will not be sucked back.
so i am wondering if i can wound a coil that has 2 wires to decrease resistance,
the current one is about 30mm in length and have 12 layers of 1.024mm of enamel coated wire.
it is just that i don't have bigger wire which has a lower resistance.
and i also did not solved my switching problem. i already damaged 3 heavy duty water heater switches
