transformer design... Answered

designing a transformer, currently i have a 250mm by 250mm window for wire and interchangeable coils, some only a few turns, but will leakage flux cause large power loss?, or will it just limmit current, i read some stuff and im not really sure, i mean i don't want to start building it if it won't work

Leakage flux appears as power losses, and high leakage currents in the primary.

You won't get as much as you'd like. What are you going to use for a core ?

it's a modular design with 2 configurations, cores are laminated, dimensions are shown 40mm by 80mm core constant with all configurations

Is this a demonstrator or something ? How much power do you WANT to transfer ?

If you lose the core and this is switched on, there will be a bang as the fuses blow.

it's for a power supply, i plan on having several coils, but mainly a HV 100+kv coil

Wind them all on one proper transformer and switch between them. "modular" like this is a waste of time really, if you want efficiency.

u just want 10+ cm arcs, i only need it to "work" not for it to be "efficient"
so, will it "work?

Maybe. You aren't planning anything fundamentally flawed.

100kV winding ? Are you planning to pot this in Epoxy resin ?

i plan on submerging it in mineral oil i already calculated for breakdown voltage
