How does a Transformer work ?

Transformers are capable of receiving AC power at one voltage and delivering it at another voltage. In this way they help achieve better transmission efficiency, while transferring the power over longer distances. In this video we will go through the working and construction of a three-phase transformer, by starting from its simplest form. The basic […]

How to protect circuits from reversed voltage polarity!

In this video I’m going to show you a couple of ways to protect your circuits from backwards power connections. Let’s say you have a 12 volt power source like a battery and you want to power something. It doesn’t matter what it is. Let’s say it draws 2 amperes. When the battery is connected […]

Difference between AC and DC Current Explained | AddOhms #5

If you’re looking for a video on legendary rock music you might have found the wrong channel. On a previous Add Ohms video we looked at Voltage, Power, and Current… …and you might remember this animation. one problem with this animation is that the voltage source shown was an AC source while the current flow […]

High Voltage Electricity and Water – 4k Slow Motion & Ultra Slow Motion

What’s up guys too they were back in the back. with an experiment that you’re told never to try at home. Today we’re experimenting with water period and high voltage electricity. I’m just kidding. that’s not even my intro. Get that camera out of my face. Welcome back to Warped perception. And this episode is […]

How to Make The Metal Melter

In a previous video I used a modified Microwave Oven Transformer as an electrical metal melter. In this video you’ll learn step by step how it was made, and what I’m using it for now. In a previous project, I found an old microwave in a dumpster and hacked it open to see what components […]

Make a Spot Welder for Cheap!!

A typical resistance spot welder like this can range in price from around $200 to over $800! That’s a little out of my price range, so for this project let’s make this one from common materials, and for just a few bucks! This modified transformer is the heart of the Spot Welder, and you might […]

Why Use AC Instead of DC at Home??

Hi. Why do we ever use AC to power homes instead of DC? Haven’t I showed you that AC is typically more dangerous than DC? [Painful Gurgle] Can we run everything on DC? Yes! In fact pretty much every device at home has to rectify AC into DC first before it can use it so […]

High voltage “Air threads”

For maximum fun we want to combine… high-voltage, water, and dry ice. This is a little negative ion generator. Puts out about seven thousand volts, hooks right to AC. Couple of different places sell it. “Electronics Goldmine” is one of them. The ground goes to the power line, and that’s the negative high-voltage. And then […]

MIG Welding: Setting Voltage and Wire Feed – Kevin Caron

(Text on screen): MIG Welding: Setting Voltage and Wire Feed, Kevin Caron, www.kevincaron.com Kevin Caron: So, a question I get asked a lot is, “How do you set the dials on the MIG welder? Where do you start?” “How to you know where to set it at for, like, a piece of 16-gauge, versus, like, […]
