How to measure 70kv with a spark gap distance:

0.5 cm: 17.0/17.0
1.0 cm: 31.3/31.3
1.5 cm: 44.5/44.8
2.0 cm: 57.0/57.4
2.5 cm: 68.8/69.3
3.0 cm: 78.8/79.4
3.5 cm: 86.6/88.0
4.0 cm: 93.6/....
4.5 cm: 99.8/....
5.0 cm: 105.5/....

From A.I.E.E Standards June 1940 as tabled in "Gaseous Conductors", J.D. Cobine, 1958. These are close to the values given in IEEE Std 4-1995 "IEEE Standard Techniques for High-Voltage Testing".

It would be nice if you could re start your Anderson project.
Sofar it is just you and me doing this.

Do you have maybe a suggestion for that oversized SCR ?

Ill gues i just will use a solid state relais for switching of the power to the positive of the cell.....
I found a nice one 1-100vdc and 80 amps SSR. I used them before and they do a good job.

cheers

Kevin, i am happy that we both take different routes. Lets see what works.

In the mean while, i am looking for the propane system of Anderson.
This is what i have sofar:
He used a secondairy regulator model J&S Carb Model 600.
A possible replacement: CLARK 721019 REGULATOR
However, i cannot find sofar the specifications of that replacement part.
