5591Re: [solectria_ev] Isolating a Solectria DC-DC converter
- Aug 12, 2009I would be happy to have all this circuitry if it weren't connected to
the case. I suppose perhaps I should have rewired it as
HV+ -- C3 -- R4 -- R3 -- C2 -- HV- to preserve the snubbing ability
without the case connection, but there is already a larger capacitor
across the input lines.
I don't think there's anything wrong with the components. The current
carried by a 0.2mfd capacitor between half of a 240 VAC line and ground is
I = V omega C = 120V * 2 pi 60 Hz * 2e-7 F = 9 mA, plenty to give you
a shock or trip your GFCI.
