10kV Flyback Transformer, 2W possible?

  1. Apr 5, 2012 #1
    Is it possible to build/purchase a 10kV (nominal) flyback transformer which runs on about 2 Watt or less?

    The flyback has to charge the stray capacitance every cycle.
    If you operate at a low enough frequency, then 2 watt is possible. (practical?)
    If you want DC output, it may be possible to have rectifiers for each secondary winding layer and obtain 10 kv DC.
