Looks reasonable, but would be better with slightly more phase lead.  You'll need a bit higher inductance to get enough.
More phase lead. Inductor values: With slug 34.1uH, without 7.1uH.

Currently, I have it about halfway seated. If the goal was to reduce that dip as much as possible I think where I have it set now is it.

No, this is far too little phase lead.  Slug removed is minimum inductance so minimum phase lead.
Oops, I was looking at that backwards.

BTW, for a bit of detail, look at the little bumps in bridge out just prior to switching in your first two slug-in scope captures.  In the second of those first two (at 50ns/div), the bump lasts roughly from division 3 to 4, with the main switching starting at division 4.6.  The beginning of that bump at division 3 is when one set of IGBTs turns off.  The end of the bump at division 4 is when current reverses, pulling bridge output back to it's previous value.  Then opposite set of IGBTs turns on starting at division 4.6.  (Current sense trace appears to be ~70ns delayed from reality.  Not sure exactly why, but seems somewhat common.  Perhaps due to parasitics of CT.)  With ideal phase lead, that bump becomes the real output transition and opposite IGBTs turn on just as current is passing through zero, around 100ns more phase lead than you have now.
I appreciate the breakdown, thanks!



The arcs seem to all be splitting, usually into two from the breakout. I have yet to get a single straight arc. In an effort to get straighter arcs I am going to try and increase primary impedance by winding a new primary. Currently I am using high MMC value with few turns. I am going to try and reverse that to see if I can slow arc growth down a bit to reduce branching.

Looks good, though I'd consider setting it for slightly more phase lead still (slug farther in).

Sounds like a good plan.  I'm certainly no expert on making single straight arcs, but slower ramp rate fits my limited experience.
Edit:  Another change to try is increasing breakout point length.  Found with my QCW coil that if breakout was too short more voltage was required to start arc (as expected).  That higher voltage caused immediate branching as arc grew rapidly initially.

Bit of an update, in my quest for straighter arcs that split and branch less I am starting to run into an issue. I have tested MANY configurations and so far haven't found a solution yet but I am now noticing some odd behavior from the driver.

I am not sure if it is due to the self-oscillation mod but the driver wont lock onto the primary feedback and oscillate at that frequency. Regardless of what I have the self-oscillation signal set at at, above or below the primary Fres it doesn't seem to kick it out of that mode. It typically oscillates around 250kHz. This occurs the closer I get to matching the primary Fres with the secondary. If it was the oscillation mod I would expect to see the feedback frequency change as I adjust the POT but it doesn't.

Here is an example of what is happening. The coil is running at around 270kHz in the beginning and then switches to running at 397kHz, which happens to be what I measured the secondary Fres at with the current topload and primary in place (open circuit). If I change the primary Fres by added or reducing capacitance I can get the coil to run on feedback again but of course the output suffers. I know that ideally the primary is detuned slightly to compensate for arc loading but I just wanted to share this behavior.

Blue= bridge output
purple= primary feedback across CT resistor

Phase lead isn't ideal either, I was just doing some quick tests.






This shows where the transition occurs.


Any ideas what could cause this? Sometimes the whole on-time of the coil will be with it running around 250-270kHz, primary current (purple) just stays flat around 2 volts depending. When it is operating on primary feedback the current usually spikes towards peak voltage.

Update: So I was messing with it some more and noticed when I turned the self oscillation frequency too high the arcs were curving downward and striking the MMC. I am running it without a topload since arcs seem to be a bit more straight. The low side resulted in louder arcs and more branching.

I was curious to see if the higher self oscitation freq was causing the arcs to curve due to being above the sweet spot (350-450ishKHz).

Purple = CT feedback
Blue = bridge output
yellow = tl3116 pin 7 output.

Overall ramp profile

Zooming in on the beginning we can see it is running at off of the self oscillation frequency +600kHz before it switches to the actual primary frequency. 




I can get straighter arcs by setting the mod closer to the primary Fres but they are still splitting. The only time I managed to get short straight arcs was when I used around 20turns on a primary and low capacitance. Output was poor but they were straight. Any other ideas for how I might get them to stop splitting initially?

H-bridge output voltage is varying, probably due to a parasitic resonance of local bridge snubber cap(s) and bulk cap(s).  Such resonances are common and usually not a problem.  However, occasionally they are problematic, such as when at 2x coil operating frequency.  Not sure if this is contributing to any of your issues or not.  You can try adding snubber capacitance or reducing interconnect inductance to bulk caps to see if either helps.
Edit:  Forgot, no bulk caps on an ramped coil.  Perhaps some other resonance between snubber caps or ...

Looks like switching from lower pole frequency to upper pole frequency.  Much more common problem is reverse of that.  Perhaps upper pole frequency with a bit of arc loading happens to match your measured secondary frequency.

What self-resonant values are you using now?  Did you make any changes per my reply #37?

Feedback amplitude is on the low side of typical.  1000:1 CT may be too high a ratio for your relatively-low-current coil.  I'd consider reducing CT ratio for more reliable feedback.  However, that may make no difference.  Even your low feedback amplitude appears to be sufficient.

Yes, slow ramps make for straight arcs.  The hard part is getting ramp fast enough for long arcs while starting smoothly enough to avoid branching.  Being limited to ramp shape of line quarter-cycle is an extra constraint compared to QCW.  However, I see successful line ramped coils here.  Perhaps someone with a good result can offer ideas.

I will try adding some snubber capacitors. My leads from the full bridge PCB to the MMC and coil primary are longer than I want but make testing easier, I know that is not ideal.

Using the formula from Mads site https://kaizerpowerelectronics.dk/tesla-coils/drsstc-design-guide/snubber-capacitor/:

Assumptions:
Ls = 200nH
Ipeak = 200A
Vtransient = 500V
Vbus = 200V

= 88.9nF, just wanted to get a rough estimate.

5 turns on my primary and 20-30nF for my resonant cap. The issue doesn't seem to show up when I am above the resonant frequency of the secondary. I check my primary output and CT feedback frequency if it is to high I add a small amount (2.2nF) and remeasure, I see the primary frequency drop accordingly but as soon as I get close to resonance (coil with topload = 462kHz) the primary switches to a much lower frequency (around 350Khz), much lower than what adding a single 2.2nF cap would cause.

This is normal behavior for standard drivers without self-oscillation.  If primary frequency is slightly above secondary, oscillation is at upper pole.  If primary is slightly below secondary, jumps to lower pole.  Self-oscillation can help force upper pole operation, but only if primary frequency isn't too far below secondary.

Got it, I see the post number now. Missed that earlier.

Just looked back at your updated schematic from a few posts ago.  C15 will need to be larger than 220pF, ~1nF, to go along with 5K for R6.  I'd recommend changing C15 rather than going so low for R6 value.
I did update the values and it helped to reduce the upper limit frequency. Making adjustments easier.

I am confused because I am using self oscillation.

Like you mentioned I probably want to aim for upper pole operation. For my current Secondary I measured the resonant frequency with the primary in place but open circuit. It was around 462kHz with a topload, no wire for streamer loading. So upper pole is going to be a bit above that? That is what I want to tune my primary for, slightly above 462kHz? If that is the case then I also want to run the oscillation mod at or around that frequency as well, right?

Just mentioning that your experience was matching normal w/o self oscillation.  Appears for some reason self oscillation isn't helping force upper pole frequency.

Quote

Yes.  How far above depends on coupling (and on primary frequency).  High coupling (generally good for QCW and ramped coils) makes upper pole frequency higher and lower pole frequency lower.

Quote

If self oscillation doesn't work to allow lower primary frequency, then yes.

Quote

If using self oscillation only to start oscillation and not to force upper pole operation, then yes.

Self oscillation can cause upper pole operation even with primary frequency lower than secondary frequency.  That's what my QCW coil does.  However, I think that works best when primary-to-secondary coupling is high.  My QCW coupling is higher than most at 0.7.  I think one or two other forum members have had success with self oscillation forcing upper pole with coupling around 0.4 or 0.45.  Not sure if anyone has tried with lower coupling than that.

Started tinkering again after a short break. Seems like I was able to fix a couple issues, but splitting arcs is my main problem now.

Significantly shortening primary connections and increasing coupling seems to have fixed the pole switching issue as well as the primary not changing its frequency when the tank cap is adjusted. Wrapping the primary directly to the secondary outer former I was able to get a coupling of 0.57k, per JavaTC.

Arc splitting:
  • I have tried everything I can think of to get the arcs to be straighter. So far, the best I can get is without a topload, the arcs are long but they split at the breakout point to form a V but it is very consistent. Both arcs are about ~21in long. With a topload I get several main arcs that then split along their length as well.
  • I have tried increasing primary turns to around 13 all the way down to 2. Higher turns at lower voltage produces much shorter but straighter arcs, at higher input voltage they begin to split all the same. Lower turns significantly increase arc current but can lead to more splitting. 5-6T seems to be the sweet spot.
  • I tested short stubby coils as well as long tall coils, geometry doesn't seem to make a major difference. Best results so far with the shorter coil.
  • Running the coil at higher Fres doesn't seem to reduce splitting either
Looking back on my RSSTC build, I could adjust the primary height to fix arc splitting. Lower primary made for shorter straighter arcs, while raising it caused the arcs to get longer it also made them split at a certain point. Adjusting the primary height with this build doesn't seem to have the same effect if any really.

Could a full bridge DRSSTC simply be supplying too much power to the coil for such a short ramp time with arc splitting being largely unavoidable?

Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.

Certainly one possibility.  Ramped coil doesn't allow changing ramp rate as a QCW coil does.  Another possibility is that feedback doesn't take over from self-oscillation at low enough voltage.  Scope primary current during ramp.  If it jumps up suddenly too far into the ramp (at too high line voltage), that sudden start may be causing branching.  Sudden jump in current may happen when feedback takes over, making frequency match (presumably upper) pole frequency.  If that is the issue, adjust self-oscillation frequency to more closely match upper pole frequency.  (Match frequency just before current jump to frequency after.)

*I will edit this post and attach the scope capture later.*

I forgot to mention a couple other changes I made. I reduced gate resistance for each IGBT from 15ohms to 10ohms and shortened the GDT output connections.

To your point when I was testing the other day, I probed the self oscillation output, CT output and primary. With the changes I made the self oscillation appeared to switch as soon as the ramp starts. I did not zoom in super close but the current ramped up smoothly as expected (like what I would see with my SSTC). I will post the capture for this later.

The oscillation mod is acting differently too (in a good way), it is more sensitive and usually has to be set quite high. Before it would work below or above resonance. I think Rafft had a similar experience with his QCW coil. It typically runs somewhere around 650kHz, going far above that causes no oscillation and running at a lower frequency causes primary to secondary arcing. Again, a similar issue I had with my RSSTC.



EDIT: Scope captures.

Yellow=Self oscillation output
Purple=primary current via CT
Blue=Primary output

Self oscillation is running around 781kHz before the coil turns on. Looks like that drops to 625kHz on startup and then all the way down to 490kHz at the halfway point.

Had my first bridge failure. Not bad considered I killed around ~15 or more IGBTs & MOSFETs with my RSSTC.

OCD did not seem to trigger when it failed. I might have it adjusted too high.

I did have moderate success with some initial testing to reduce arc branching. I added a small wire wound inductor on the primary output in an effort to limit the initial current to the primary. I was only able to mess with the coil and look at the scope for a bit before it failed. But it managed to reduce branching quite a bit! Primary current was much lower for ~1.5ms or so before ramping up as usual, I think this is what helped to reduce branching. The coil failed after reducing the tank cap. I will have to take a look at it more this weekend and see what I can find out and do some more testing.

Agree, that sounds likely.  Slower start helps reduce branching.  However, whatever is causing that change 1.5ms into ramp might be a cause of failure.  Only guess that comes to mind is that feedback isn't taking over from self-oscillation for initial 1.5ms under conditions of this test.

That is what I was thinking too but I did not get the chance to do enough testing. Since I haven't had a failure until recently these are the original IGBTs and I think I have stressed them A LOT. I noticed some uneven heating in two of the IGBTs before they failed so I think they were already compromised.

I will do some more testing and post my results.
