This morning I had an inspiration. Maybe I'm being too simplistic, but

it only seems to make sense.

Let's look back to the basic properties of a basic transformer. Power

in equals power out. Let's take a 1:10 step up transformer as an

example. 12V 1A in equals 120V 0.1A out. If it's a 1:100 transformer,

12V 1A in equals 1200V 0.01A out. No matter what way you look at it,

the power must be equal.

We all know that the secondary, the choke coil and the amp inhibiting

coil are actually all secondaries to as they share a common core.

Assuming:

1. Two coils with the exact same number of turns but are configured to

oppose each other will cancel each others fields and thereby each others

current

2. The higher the number of turns, the lower the current on the secondary

3. The lower the number of turns, the higher the current on the secondary

4. The VIC has 3 secondaries

Configure (assuming 12V, 1A primary):

1. Choke coil as 1:100 with primary coil; choke coil should be 1200V, 0.01A

2. "Secondary" coil as 1:10 with primary coil; "secondary" coil should

be 120V, 0.1A

3. Amp restricting coil (which is reverse polarity) as ? with primary coil

I hope you all see where I am going with this by now. In theory, by

step 3 the cumulative current is now at 0.11A. This means that we need

to configure the amp restricting coil to step up from the primary at the

point where it will return 0.11A to restrict all current flow.

Since power in equals power out, the step up to get 0.11A from 12V and

1A would be 12W/0.11A which is 109.1V which is a ratio of 1:9.1

So, the three steps to complete restrict current becomes:

Configure (assuming 12V, 1A primary):

1. Choke coil as 1:100 with primary coil; choke coil should be 1200V, 0.01A

2. "Secondary" coil as 1:10 with primary coil; "secondary" coil should

be 120V, 0.1A

3. Amp restricting coil (which is reverse polarity) as 1:9.1 with

primary coil; amp restricting coil should be 109.1V, 0.11A

The net current is now 0A due to cancellation, but the net voltage is

1200+120-109.1 which is 1210.9V!!!
