High Voltage Transformers

High voltage transformers are used for isolating two sections of a circuit or system, and along with voltage multipliers, generate the output of high voltage power supplies. Some HV related issues that need to be addressed in the design include:
  • layer winding or universal winding (also know as pi winding)
  • volts per layer
  • compatibility with subsequent potting or encapsulation. (Incompatibility can cause failure of the potting material to cure, subsequent failure due to dielectrics in series, and other problems.)
  • clearance and creepage distances
