NE555 tesla coil Don Smith ignition coil Tesla coil.....? Answered
I know I've requested info on this previously, but there are still some info I am lacking.
The questions I have are these: for the 2 nf capacitors, at what voltage rating would be best to use.
For the lack of my own intelligence, could somebody tell me in what direction the power flows? (direction in the diagram)
I have almost all the parts save for the nf caps and the 2 diodes. does anyone have a suggestion of what kind of HV diode I could use for the 45KV diode? unfortunately the exact rating with 1-2Amps of a 45KV diode so far is WAY to expensive for me. Any suggestions?
What would the approximate power output from the ignition coil be?
