Assuming the 2SK117 that's in there now is the component "limiting" the voltage to 340V, I would find it's Idss less than (approximately) 2.5mA?

So I should find one 2.8mA or better? (by your formula)

Salas,

BTW - I did not yet substitute a 1 ohm for the 10ohm sampling resistor, I do not have a 1% MF.

I found a strong 2SK117 with an Idss of 5.6mA (using the 9V battery test)
However, it did not make so much of a difference.

I can now readily get the output to 350V, at 80mA. However, that's with a minimum of 420V in. If I drop below that, the output falls pretty fast. I think that's a maintainable number (420V) for Vin, since it's coming off of my plate supply, but why would I need 70V overhead to maintain a Vo of 350V??

Very odd, the other board id not behave like that at all!

OK, I found the problem. Time for a break while I fix my head...

Ok, all better now.

I had 2 resistors in series for the load, a 5K and a 820 ohm. I had my meter clipped across just the 5K.

Next time I'll look a bit closer before I send an SOS.

Sorry to bother you Salas, and thanks for your help.

 10th December 2012, 07:10 PM #3568 Salas   diyAudio Chief Moderator     Join Date: Oct 2002 Location: Athens-Greece The multiplier will ruin the flat low Z. Rather not. If you meant putting the mult before, rather yes. But use output cap on the mult to avoid it will ring with CCS.

Salas....I changed the shape of the heat sink and now I am fitting two SSHV2 boards in my PSU box....

I will set each board to about 30mA giving about 8-9mA to each VT25A tube.

If I connect 2 x SSHV2 boards to the PSU instead of one SSHV2, do I need to change the bleeder value or other parts of the PSU??
