Abstract

Piezoelectric transformers can be useful as compact, high-voltage supplies. At the University of Missouri, the effect of adding output circuits to bipolar piezoelectric transformers is being studied. These piezoelectric transformers produce output voltages in excess of 25 kV from medium-voltage, radio frequency inputs. However, the high output voltage and low output current of these devices can make it difficult to acquire an accurate electrical measurement of the output voltage without affecting the transformer ratio or resonance of the device. This paper will analyze capacitive voltage dividers as a means of diagnostic measurement and Cockcroft-Walton type circuits to increase the voltage multiplication beyond that of the piezoelectric transformer alone.
