! I never thought of driving a MOT that way. Hmmm, couple of beefy IGBTs, put the transformer in oil, maybe a motor starting capacitor for the tank....... That could be funTrue, but he's only inputting around 10V after that isolation transformer. I have a video of around 24V and the ignition coil is doing closer to 60KV. One can also change the capacitor to be inline with the resonant frequency of the given transformer. I have also used these drivers on modified MOTs. Granted you do need a big ZVS driver and tank cap to drive them.
Not disagreeing with you about the resonant frequency.
