Re: Capacitive discharge

Thanks Al, my transformer, has a center-tapped primary, a base feedback winding, and center-tapped secondary. And I have no idae how to model it, I have tried to use several transformers and set the turns ratio as needed, but the ratios are shared and I can't figure out how to make them unique. Plea...

Re: Capacitive discharge

Oh man, you guys are a great help. Now i just need to figure out how to model a custom transformer in spice, any ideas :confused: ? But, thanks so much for the cap formulas.

Re: Capacitive discharge

Is the formula for a cap's charging current, I=Io*(1-e^(-t/RC))? Thanks or all the help.<p>[ September 08, 2004: Message edited by: camino75080 ]</p>

Re: Capacitive discharge

Buy chance, I am calculating the current though an arc. What would be a good aproximation of the arc's resistance?

Re: Capacitive discharge

Thanks Al, I dint realize there were there were other formulas, I looked on the internet and only for PHD research papers, that sucked, I could make any sense of them!

Re: Capacitive discharge

Okay, thanks. So if I plugin time time constant for a given resistor/capacitor combination, for S then I get the current :cool: . Thanks again for the help

Re: Capacitive discharge

Colin, thanks for the formula, i was way off, but I don't understand how that works without having the resistance. If you can, would you please explain that. Thanks again for the help.

Capacitive discharge

Man, am I on a roll tonight. ;) Anyway a am looking for a formula calculate the current of a capacitive dischare, varibles: voltage, current (duh), and resistance. So far I've got this I=(((C*C)*V*R)/2). Please help me.

Re: Heating Element Question

Thanks for the ideas here are my answers:<p>Dale Y: The super cap will be charged from a charging base in about 5 min. The batteries were AA rechargable alkine because, you have to hold the tool like a pencil to trimm the bird's nails.<p>stephen: I'm wasn't trying to control the temperature, I was t...
