i have recently converted a phillips noreleco industrial constant potential x-ray generator to a conventional mid point grounded medical generator type. out put voltage ,measured with 10 cm sphere gaps,made from toilet bowel floats is 180kv. My problem is that placeing an ma meter in series from ground to center tap indicates very little current,perhaps microamperes. on the other hand,an ma meter placed in the high tension circuit with a resistor in series indicates substantial current flow.
can this be explained,what am i missing. thanks,guy
