Hi all, I've been using a HV step up transformer (10kV-20W on secondary) lately and I'm wanting to look at the HV pulses on an oscilloscope. The coil is isolated from ground. I know connecting a probe directly to it is dangerous and would ruin my scope. I want to use a differential probe but they are crazy expensive so this got me wondering... Instead of using a differential probe rated at 10+kV could I use a lower rated probe (say 1kV) then a voltage divider on the circuit using some HV resistors across the components I want to take measurements across? Would this be safe to do as long as its done right. I should mention also the pulsing frequency is 25kHz so I shouldn't need to worry about parasitic elements on the divider, or do I?
