Hardware overview

A project log for Mach Effect Thruster Xperiments

Building a Mach Effect Thruster (propellantless) based on Jim Woodward´s ideas -but going a different path

Here´s the overview of the hardware modules. It´s very straightforward and exchangeable.
The inverter in version 1.0 was underdimensioned and got hot. The new inverter is doing the job much better. For the vacuum tests, I heatsinked the inverter mosfets directly to the chassis. There is also an additional heatsink thermally bonded to the inverter transformer core which will sink the heat to the chassis. Electrolytic caps are potted in epoxy to avoid eventual burst inside the vacuum chamber.

Hey Paul,
  anything new about your experiments?
Best of success anyways !

  Are you sure? yes | no

Yes. I moved house recently, now finally the new workshop is up and running. I will have the next test article ready soon.
