Re: power transformer design
I'm chiming in on this pretty late, but there's a great instructional page for building homebrew PT's... It doesn't go into the physics of them very deep, instead offering some ranges of approximations which should be more than adequate if you don't attempt to push the specs (smallest core area possible, etc.) too much. I think I'll give it a try sometime for a nice overbuilt tranny with HV taps and a heater voltage that is actually or even slightly below 6.3vac (unlike the 6.9vac I get from Hammonds). I've just gotta find some laminations up here in the great white north ;).
