Don't Know for Sure, but.....

This Bedini is driven by a solar panel.
The thing is that when I changed these resistors to 1watt charge is worse
Why is this?
Hey Guruji,

Don't know for sure, but one possibility is that the 1/4 watt resistors were carbon and the 1 watt resistors are "wire wound" meaning they are adding some inductance to the control section that wasn't there before.

Look at the signal on the base of the transistor with an oscilloscope and see if it looks the same as with the 1/4 watt resistor and diode.

Beyond that, this really isn't the right thread to discuss this issue.
