Hello Chris and all foreros friends, I tell you my point of view.
I do not know why you mention that Akula's work is that of Milchenko.
Akula refers to the phenomenon of ferro-resonance, although
they resemble each other, it is not the same.
What they have in common is that in both cases the inductance varies.
In the Milchenko circuit it refers to energy gain due to the increase
of inductance during the cycle of Toff (Flyback) and therefore greater power output.
From my point of view short circuiting one of the bucking coils during the Toff cycle.
I have not tried, I will do it when I have the least possible time.
However, the idea of extracting energy due to saturation I have been shuffling.
The phenomenon of ferro-resonance has been known for a long time, it is only necessary that
Xl is smaller than Xc, in this way the current will advance to the voltage causing high
voltage peaks in the capacitance; If we remember that the energy of a capacitor is U ^ 2C / 2
and its power to the load if it works in discontinuous mode is 0.5U ^ 2F then you can
if it is AU, and all this due to the non-linearity of the ferromagnetic core that we use.
In all the videos that I have seen of eternal light, it shows waves that refer to ferro-resonance.
I have already been doing tests, in which I only analyze if it is AU or not.
After being AU I implement the circuit so that it is self-supplied.
Here are some images of the tests I do.
Thanks to everyone in the forum.
