when meyer said oh we have to use 5 amps big deal he meant this because of the losses 5 amps flowing tru a resonant circuit of 2 ohms series resistance consumes 50 watts you see?

Hi sebosfato,

Yes, but was he only talking about a transformer (variac)?

Where is the 2 ohms series resistance located? Inputing 50 watts of power is nothing, compared what you get in return (aka Meyer setup).

If you want HV then you must input more current in the transformer.

When I simulate this circuit with input of 110V, you pulling about 8Amps (depending on transformer design) and CHARGE it to 4kV.

I only want to figure out how the CHARGE-PUMP is operating.
