COCKROFT WALTON VOLTAGE MULTIPLIER PDF

Meshicage This is particularly useful when the charging stack capacitors are significantly smaller than the output filter capacitors. Cockrodt help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Assume the circuit is powered by an alternating voltage V i with a peak value of V pand initially the capacitors are uncharged. All the capacitors are charged to a voltage of 2 V pexcept for C1which is charged to V p.

Cockcroft Walton Voltage Multiplier This is a schematic diagram for a three stage, full wave Cockcroft-Walton voltage multiplier. Named after John Douglas Cockcroft and Ernest Thomas Sinton Walton, winners of the Nobel Prize in physics for "Transmutation of atomic nuclei by artificially accelerated atomic particles.

More stages produce higher voltages and lower currents. The no load output voltage is simply the number of stages multiplied by the peak input voltage. Copper straps and solder connect the capacitors and diodes together. With 75 VAC in to the transformer, the voltage at the output terminal was 40, VDC the maximum rating of my high voltage probe. With volts in, this corresponds to an output of 64, VDC, pretty close to what I calculated above. The grid blocks in the lower left hand corner of the picture are 1" square.

I put a paper towel over the back of the unit to give the picture better contrast. Here it is hooked up to and sitting on top of my 15 kVAC neon sign transformer, with volt input. A point electrode, made from aluminum roof flashing, is suspended over the top electrode and grounded via a 23 megaohm current limiting resistor network. This picture shows a simple electrostatic motor set up and ready to run.

Here I am, drawing a very impressive and loud 4" arc from the rim of the running motor to a grounded no limiting resistor steel sphere. Here is a picture of my new, four stage, full wave Cockcroft-Walton voltage multiplier after my can crusher killed the three stage unit above.

Besides having four stages, the new unit uses crimp style butt connectors to join the diodes together and home made spring clips to connect the diodes and capacitors instead of solder so the next time I blow all of the diodes, I can just plug in new ones.

The new CW in action, with ion motor and spark. It puts out 40, volts with a 62 volt input compare to 3 stage, above and when hooked up to an old panel style milliamp meter, 8 ma with volts input.

One way to look at the circuit is that it functions as a charge "pump", pumping electric charge in one direction, up the stack of capacitors. The CW circuit, along with other similar capacitor circuits, is often called charge pump. For substantial loads, the charge on the capacitors is partially depleted, and the output voltage drops according to the output current divided by the capacitance. Characteristics[ edit ] In practice, the CW has a number of drawbacks.
