Neon discharge as high resistance value.
- In the preceeding RCB neon discharge shown as
there appears to be the discrepancy of the primary
input where apparently 336 ma is being inputed at 7
volts, but a voltage rise occurs showing 8.35 volts
inputing .29 Amps in the loop, thus with that voltage
rise is the loss in amperage in the loop. These
voltage and amperages as the reactive power input show
approximately 2.35 watts. However at the primary only
154 ma is measured, making the reactive input only
8.35 * .154 = 1.28 watts. The reactive power
measurement at secondary is also 1.92 watts.
In that case then we have used 600 volts and 3.2 ma
for the reactive input measurements to yeild 1.92
VAR,(volt ampere reactive) It is known that VARs do
not yeild true power input which is always less than
power input derived using reactive component
measurememnts. We might then assume that the true
power input figure must be closer to that derived at
the primary by 1.28 watts.
Let us then compute the acting resistance of the
discharge if 1.28 watts were expended. We already know
that a measured 3.2 ma is occuring, but that the
reactive power mesurements produce a wattage 50%
greater that that inputed at primary. Because of the
fact that dual channel scopings show little or no
phase angle deviations between the applied and
midpoint voltages, we might further suppose that those
reactive power primary input measurments are in fact
identical to true power ones.
Thus we might initially consider the equation 1.28= I
squared R, where R is to be determined by determining
I^2= (.0032)^2= 1.024 *10^-5, where the R value then
becomes that multiplier making the result 1.28, or the
very large value of 125,000 ohms.
Comparing these values to what actually occurs with
the 600 volt secondary voltage, if the 125,000 ohms
were purely resistive, we would expect a 4.8 ma
conduction. It then appears as a higher ohmic value as
a consequence of its reactance being higher than the
resistive. In any case it seems to be easy to classify
the neon discharge as having a very high resistance
filament, and not a low one as formerly imagined. HDN
