My hat is off to Jim Murray ...

... probably due to some subliminal influence lurking in my subconscious brain as I stumbled upon a surging, shorted, motor transformer by taking the development of my SPICE simulations of the Joseph Newman device a little bit further ...

A video screencast of a simulated motor transformer surging due to a full bridge rectifier feeding a capacitor.

Jim Murray talks about ...

Fundamentals of the Transforming Generator by Jim Murray

... how a surge can develop when capacitance allows for the accumulation of electrical charge in a transforming generator. I've discovered the same thing in a motor transformer. Here, I describe my testing of a circuit representing a motor with a full bridge rectifier feeding a capacitor to produce a surge.

See, also my documentation ...
