High Voltage Power Supply

High Voltage Power Supply

This is a very simple design mainly to show that there are uncommon uses for common parts. Note: I have not built this supply because I have no use for it. Really it is nothing more then a transformer, rectifier and filter. If you build this supply without knowledge in electronics or high voltage, you have basically signed your own death certificate. This supply can be very dangerous if not treated properly
Part Total Qty. Description

C1 1 0.68uF 2200V Capacitor
T1 1 2KV Microwave Transformer
S1 1 10 Amp 120VAC Switch
C4 1 2000uf Electrolytic Capacitor
MISC 1 Wire, Line Cord, Output Terminals

Notes
This circuit is dangerous! Do not build it if you do not have any experience with electronics or high voltage.
The circuit can produce about 250-500mA at 2KV, depending on the transformer.
For C1, you can use the capacitor out of an old microwave.
This circuit is mainly provided as a demonstration of using commonly available parts for something uncommon
