20 amp output circuit

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

A series capacitor worked best for low impedance loads while a parallel capacitor was used to feed into high impedance loads. Today`s norm is a 50 ohm antenna antenna/coax system requiring a series capacitor. loading adjustment. With SW3 I can switch out the series capacitor all together or add in additional capacitance to give me a total

range from about 20pF to 900pF. Tune up becomes very much like a pi network "dip and load". With SW3 and C5 set for minimum capacitance the plate current is dipped using C4. After dipping, the loading capacitance is increased using C5, C6 and C7 into the range of operating plate current and then the current redipped using C4. C4, C5, C6 and C7 interact so this process must be repeated until the last C4 adjustment puts the plate current where it needs to be for full output. in my case about 150 mA. 500 VDC on the TZ-20 plates at 150 mA gives me 75 watts input.
