New AC motor for Tesla Coil spark gap
Bought an asynchronous AC motor today. It is 3-phase 0.18 KW asynchronous AC motor.
The motor is for my new Tesla Coil design using rotary spark gap. The motor is to be controlled by a frequency converter, which will be a VCO stage of home-made PLL to synchronize Mains phase with the motor rotation. That should be a very good rotary spark gap, since phase adjustment will be automatic and precise.
The price is ~84 USD, which is quite high for motors like this - but it's because I bought 1 unit. If you buy more units, the price drops considerably.
Now I need to consult my colleagues at The Plant, 'cause I need a part which will be set on the motor's shaft and rotate an insulating disc with electric contacts on it.
