Kaizer Power Electronics - www.kaizerpowerelectronics.dk
« on: April 03, 2017, 05:56:02 pm »
Hello All

Just wanted to tell you a little about my high voltage, Tesla coil and general electronics website. 7 years of projects and data :)

It contains schematics, pictures, instructions and videos of 10 Tesla coils of different topologies, a DRSSTC design guide on how to chose components for building such coils. Another 10 smaller high voltage related projects, 3 tube amplifiers, many online electronics calculators like IGBT gate drive, transistor base resistor, MMC calculator and single layer coils. Theory pages with data lists, file archive with a good collection of application notes. General electronics and everyday experiments.

Read a few months ago some posts about Solid State Tesla Coils on your website, very good read  :-+

Would recommend it for everyone to check it out

A new article has been added that describes the thoughts, design, construction and test of a very high impedance primary circuit QCW DRSSTC, where the voltage ramp is coming straight from half wave rectified mains supply and a mains synced interrupter is used to trigger at the right interval.

The article covers the fall pits and strange behaviour of Tesla coils driven in this manner.

The project is highly experimental and the results were not as satisfying as expected, but problems with switching transients was a much bigger issues than initially thought of.

Read it all, see all the pictures and view all the videos at: http://kaizerpowerelectronics.dk/tesla-coils/kaizer-drsstc-iv/

I made a new channel trailer for my youtube channel, which is more action packed than the old one, what do you think?

New trailer:

It's better now, but since you asked, I'll put in my 2-cents... You look a little rigid and need to loosen-up a bit. Also, stop looking up to your right before cutting forward. Fasten your eyes and maybe experiment to see how a brief mischievous eye works for your style (you may not be comfortable with that so try what works for you - but be sure to hold the eyes till the first cut).

Since HV is kind of risky and exiting stuff, a continuity of background beat music is catchy (volume and edge should suite you not anyone else). Raise and lower background volume to not compete with voice-overs and effects. Since it's short, make sure cuts are fast with some light-flash cuts and definitely in-sync with the rhythm. Maybe some help here.

Lastly you may want to cut down, break-up or even lower the long spark sound at the beginning, since noisy intro's get old pretty quick when returning to the channel (but it could be just me the semi-retired schlager musik fan).

Thank you for the feedback.

I know I am a little stiff in it, I think it comes from English being my 2nd language and maybe a little stage freight, handheld camera as I do not even have space for a tripod in the cramped lab :) So I spend too much brainpower on keeping camera still enough, to keep my head in the shot etc etc. I never make a script beforehand, I do retake some scenes, I often feel the big disadvantage of being alone to do both experiments and filming, its hard to do both really good.

I do try to be more happy, less dry in my speech and so on, but damn its hard when it gets technical :)

Problem with music and youtube is that they will almost instantly slam you with a copyright claim, so I just stopped using it, maybe once I build my sequencer/VCOs I can make my own, but it will hardly be any good. Even royalty free music / commercial free music does not go free of this.

I made that splash screen with spark sound as my trademark, as you have seen on many videos, lowering the sound and shortening it to 2 seconds will be tried in the future.

I did some more experiments and teardowns, I also made a new intro splash which is used in these two latest videos





I have been working on getting better audio (external active microphone on DSLR), unless its handheld smartphone recordings and lightning, but a 10 sq.m. lab that contains 9 sq.m stuff really makes things difficult, but I do not want to let that stop me from making videos :)

Happy new year to all the readers, followers, subscribers, liker's and users that has to do with reading, commenting and writing on www.kaizerpowerelectronics.dk or www.highvoltageforum.net

I have filmed a small new year special video for you all! See you all in 2018 for more high voltage exploration and experimentation!

I bought a house and that is why updates have been rare, as I went into deconstruction/construction mode. I have however made a few small videos along the way to show the progress of moving all the electronics and get settled in a new work shop/lab.

Before moving out


Moving out


The new place


Some kind of order is restored in the work shop

There has also been a lot of teardown videos etc, you can find that on the channel

Seems that I forgot to post part 5 long ago, so here is both part 5 and part 6 :)





I am operational again!
