Dual 3/8 ferrite block conductions.
I have already shown many single 3/8 inch block ferrite conductions
from alternator METR DC rectifications, and notably in showing this
process many times to individuals, I now noted that one of the 6 A
diodes on one full wave rectification bridge has gone bad, so that
one of three 4 diode assemblies is now bypassed and the third one in
parallel was used as the second one in its place. This leaves some
open questions there, because normally if a diode goes bad, it no
longer offers a high reverse ohmic value conduction to the source and
the lack of this quality causes the diode to rapidly heat up to
meltdown, provided the source will supply that meltdown current... In
using diodes straight off the alternator stator output, this has
happened before, and when that plastic construction of the diode
melts, it releases some damn nasty toxic fumes, but here when and if
that malfunction happens, the diodes are already "current limited" by
the outside (METR)source, and since you have two rectifications from
2 of the 3 phases this inherent malfunction might not be readily
known, and in fact it seems in contrast to common sence that the
system will still work to make the ferrite heating from one
rectification working in parallel to another faulty rectification
that normally would offer itself as a short to the source... BUT To
make a long story short I started wondering what would happen if we
ran a short across the DC output wires of the ferrite heating
process. Of course I am only picking on the illegitamately born slobs
that come from many a whores womb, when they ask why the short wire
doesnt melt? I say look idiot, the effen cuurent on short is goin to
be less then the damn current when it has a load, so whats the
concern here? Damn you know that this is an understatement also
because after you short out a 3 A ferrite glow, your amperage meter
reads zero amps! Talk about a superb resonant choke circuit....
But I havent yet figured out my next choke victim, so some pics are
Background/ two ferrite pieces in series for arc stroke/45.2DC volts
yeilds 1.67 A
Close up/ two block conduction @ 45*1.7=76.5 watts.
Lowered voltage delivery@ higher amperage consumption@ better
The efficiency of delivery was actually increased for this example,
which seems a bit strange, where the first case was a 14 volt stator,
and the second one a 22 volt stator. However the voltages and
amperages across the loads went vicey/ versa as indicated...
So I'm done working for awhile, my next choke awaits...
