Hello

I found an interesting condition when the secondary wire is made greater than the chokes in meters while smaller in diameter...

The first idea is easier to understand...

As the choke is there to synchronically choke the secondary voltage, the resistance of the secondary wire being of greater value starts making difference when current starts to flow within the circuit...

Lets suppose the voltage at the secondary is 1100 volts and it has 100 ohms resistance, and the choke has a negligible resistance and chokes out 1000 volts...

What happens..

If the current reach 1 amper the secondary is now only delivering 1000 volts since the voltage drop will reduce the output voltage... So no current can flow above that point being limited...

Doesn't it seems like a mechanism to have a transformer with controlled current limited?

Now if the choke has a resistive wire

If the secondary has a resistance lower than the choke...

Its known that amps flowing in the secondary will reduce its own voltage... but as the choke has opposite voltage a current flowing into it would sum with the induced voltage, so to also control the current...

of course voltage drop at the diode should also be considered...

I was thinking about this because for my new vic i'm going to use a secondary wire thinner than the chokes wires, to be able to fit to the transformer the needed turns ...
