If you are wanting to make long sparks, then I would reccomend using a different circuit. For example a 3. I think that I need to switch the TIP with something faster. September 22, at The brightness temperature of a discharge is proportional to the current flowing through it. The diodes in this may also be damaged by too much current.

As mentioned above, additional components are needed for full control over duty cycle. A common signal source is based on a timer like this DIY signal generator. What possible issues should I be looking for, other than the basics? They would be tough enough, but they are very fast.
The reason is due to the way transistors work. The output from this lead is High Voltage DC. Andrew Villalpando December 24, at I want to drive the coil at around 45kHz. The translaton is not great so i am not exacly sure what you are asking.
Control 10 amps in solenoid with Arduino and 2n3055
The power supply i used was an old pc psu with 12 amps from the 12v output. I think you need to reconsider PWM. I built a circuit similar to these and have decided to take it a step further.
If they are blowing up, it is most likely due to over heating. Not sure what type it is??? I looked thouroughly the schem of HV Coil Driver with one coil. You can use PMW as that’s an easy and efficient way to control the current.

I have the high voltage output set to arc to the negative terminal of the coil, is that putting ckil back into the house if so how can i change my set up to stop high voltage feed back, the lamp no longer works i tried a new light bulb, its fried.
Placing one between c and e of the transistor would also work if it were rated for similar power levels. Most such designs use a bridge rectifier and a smoothing capacitor. coi,
Since this is for a science fair you would also need to screen the heatsinks to prevent anyone coming in contact with them and getting burnt. This would explain the lack of current drop.
You can use a variety of values here. This does not translate to common BJTs, which 2b3055 “gain” and “saturation” statistics instead. The effectiveness ability to produce sparks is reduced with the exclusion of the R from the RC coll since this effectively defeats the switching function of the transistor.
All of which i test out on every circuit variation. Do you already have an account? I think we dont need the full frecuency range, so extra capacitors are not neded or necesary in the pwm above.
Would this stop the ignition coils from stepping up the voltage or should they step up slightly even with a lower coi going through them. This capacitance is only very small, but it is plenty enough to prevent the voltage rising to infinity. If both the high side and low side of an H-bridge are on simultaneously, the result is commonly known as “shoot-through”, or a dead short across the power supply. The two ignition coils I currently have are different brands but similar upright cylindrical, oil filed types.
Which is the frecuency range the coil should work wel to give better results? Interrupt this circuit ie with a switch or simply disconnect a wire and the current stops flowing.
For protecting it, should I employ the snubbers you have? You really want a 10 amp power supply, using 0v to 6v range.
