Induction heater using the famous mazzilli vladimiro flyback driver? Answered
After being done with 555oscillators and other hv projects. i am now interested with induction heater. i have seen multiple schematics on how to make them. However the parts needed are expensive. there was a similar question posted last year but did not have enough information etc. i have seen some people making the induction heater with the zvs driver of mazzilli, but did not give enough information on how to make it.
i need to wind 8+8turns on a flyback transformer core and 4 turns of thick wire one the other side to give more current.
1. can i wind the 8+8 turns on a toroidal core instead of a flyback transformer core(i don't want to break it even if i have more than 5)
2. for the capacitor 0.68uf. can a big 10uf 400v~ capacitor be used instead? or should i use 3X 0.22uf 400v~ in parallel so that it don't over heat due to high currents?
3. Will 2X 12v 35Ah car battery in series be enough to power the driver? i mean, will it drain the battery too fast which will lower its life span or should i use a rewound MOT?
4. Will a 2500uf 50v capacitor connected across the power supply be needed to smooth the current or will the circuit run finely without it.
