When I boiled water with AC, it was exactly the opposite, as the water got hot, the resistance decreased and more current flowed, until the point that this snowball effect blew my transistor.

I can put 1-2kV DC pulse train in tap water without any problems, but the current peaks are insane, about 10-20 amps, pure electrolysis. If you increase the voltage more, more current will flow. The water gets super hot after a while and makes a lot of cloudy gas.

The more conductive the water is, more current you need to reach high voltage peaks, thats why in distilled water is easy to do. You need a driver and supply that can feed many amps.

I was never able to make that

The springs in the connectors melted the Delfim plastic in my case because of the heat generated

Also my power supplies was poor man’s powersupply the most powerful I use to have was a old 12v bater that could give around 400 watts and with 500 w variac

So I believe that except for this tests I described I never ran more than 200w straight to water anyway…

To change that I build a very powerfull power supply and switching now I only miss constructing the coils and capacitors to test

There is so many tests I want to do that I’m confuse about what to do first…

I’m going to try the ac boiling too… I didn’t imagined it could do the opposite effect….

Well, power going into the cell is very relative. I ran mine with 300W (300V/1A), but I can send it in bursts of 10kW (1000V/10A) to the water. Its just a matter of how you'll deliver it to the load.

I hope I can reach like 2kv 1a with pure water delivering 2kw

The power supply and switching can goes up to 6kw but I bet everything will fry before that..


I plan to have at least two coils being pulsed 180 degrees apart so they can intercala-te charging and discharging to the cell

Well, you'll have a pretty nice gas cloud, the water will get hot quickly and it will be pure electrolysis.

And the most important, you need a 2kohm cell, which needs to be very small in order to reach this impedance.

Mines are 100ohms each using tap water.
