Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: Other Methods IT

"So "power" is the wrong word for me to use. It seem like a matter of semantics. Current still needs to be delivered from the driver stage even if it causes no heat in the tube (load)."

Yes, I would agree that in the context of discussing the requirements for the driver to be able to supply the necessary voltage and current signal to the output stage, the fact that the power dissipated into a capacitative load is zero is probably hardly relevant.

I haven't thought much about it, but on the face of it I would suppose that the design criteria for a driver that can supply the voltage and supply the current are not really that much affected by whether the voltage and the current are 90 degrees out of phase or not. What matters should be that the driver can provide the necessary current, at the required voltage, without significant voltage drop at the higher frequencies where the capacitance matters more.
