Simple Easy 3.7 Volts DC to 3000 Volts AC - Power Moseft IRFZ48N

A simple circuit to convert 3.7 Volt DC battery to 3000 Volts AC using fast switching power mosfet IRFZ48N. The transformer is salvaged from faulty power supply with center tap primary. The component is very simple and easy to put together

The DC to AC circuit

1 x 1000 Ohm Resistor
1 x IRFZ48N Power Mosfet
1 x Mini step up transformer with center tap primary

The Voltage Multiplier to amplify the voltage up to 3000 volts

8 x Ceramic layer capacitors that can withstand up to 3 kilo Volts (3kV) of voltage and 8 diodes 1N4007 diodes. This is the simple schema if you have any question just let me know








10 Nano Farads Ceramic Capacitor or 0.001 Micro Farad is good enough

    1. As stated 10 Nano farad is fine...but you can use between range of 10 nano farad up to 3300 nano farad

  2. why diodes don't burn? 1n4007 are 1000v rated

  3. step-up transformer is used which measure how much?

  4. You need add a 1N4007 in reverse from the base to the ground. MOSFET won't last long without it.

  5. With a Villard circuit since it has 13 phases - it should have 37,000 volts for it doubles with phase (with losses about 30.000 volts) and to have a spark that long it has to have that much.

  6. Thanks for sharing this information. It will work with any center tap transformer.

  7. I have a scope read out on the voltage straight out of the transformer but I can't up load it. It reads 2740 volts before going to the multiplier circuit. It will destroy a tester trying to check it - I lost one without a overload circuit. The scope has a High Voltage probe that can read 5000 volts.

    1. Cool experiment - i am excited too see how much voltage you can get since i don't have those sophisticated tools to measure high voltage power.
