During my endless search for a suitable flyback transformer for my HV sci
project, the idea crossed my mind to wind my own transformer all by myself.
So far what I would need is a ferrite core (is there any specific type of
core I would need for a flyback or just a normal rectangular one?), really
thin (44 gauge?) magnet wire for secondary, 18 - 22 gauge wire for primary,
and some sort of machine to wind the secondary coils since it would take
hours and days to wind it by hand. I would then coat maybe every 5 layers of
the secondary with varnish to keep it all together, then put a whole bunch
of coats all over the whole thing. I think this sounds like a hell of a
project and would be very interesting to do. What do you all say? Am I just
plain crazy? Does it take like real designing to make one of these things?
How about the math involved to calculate the number of turns of the
secondary and determining its resonant frequency, and all that good stuff...
I'd like to know what you all think of this. Thanks for your input!
