I have created a generator outputting 300v spikes at 333 spikes per second. Wanting to discharge spikes to 4700 uF/400v capacitor bank and am having trouble calculating the cap discharge rate, and if a 555 timer is the appropriate tool for discharging the capacitance into an inverter. I am a new threader but I love listening to you guys input each other, especially when you disagree. Its like listening to Sheldon and Leonard! And I mean this in the most respectful way.
