    Hi everybody

    Does anybody have any recommendations for a project I can do within 3 months. This would be part of my final year fulfillment at college. I would be interested in either high frequency or power electronics. But the important part is that it should be doable within the time frame.

    How about designing a wireless power transmission system? This is always a really fun project to see...

    I've started looking into a rail gun. Is there any hickups you might want to warn me about for this project

    one hickup would be that you would get no help with it from the members of this site. it is against our TOS.

    Another hickup involves a nail going through your hand.

    Hello,

    In the ToS there are two parts that do not allow the discussion of rail guns:

    and

    So better choose an other subject.

    Most automobile plants already have those. They use them for electrostatic painting. Day shift would run at max kv (80-120vdc) to get optimal transfer but with numerous overcurrent faults, while night shift would crank the HV down to 50-60vdc kv to have a quiet, dull but productive evening.

    Behr put their HV generators in oil filed 5gal buckets to give them high dielectric strength. Another approach was potting them in hard plastic, you'd end up with a black thing about the size of a cucumber. 0-20v in = 0-120 out.
