Better listen to Sultini, he is so right. If that valve sticks open it will do it again.

"A 24v 40 VA 'frmr with 26v open circuit voltage, at 21v, is delivering ~4A. "

40/24 = 1.67 A full load current

24/1.67 = 14.4 ohms full load resistance value

26/(Rint + 14.4) = 1.67A Assuming the 'frmr internal impedance is mostly resistive

26/1.67 = (Rint + 14.4) = 15.6 ohms

Rint = 1.17 ohms

4A x 1.17 = 4.7 v

26-4.7 = 21.3v

?

Ohm's laws, only apply to resistive loads. And are for DC. And we are talking AC, not DC. While it can be used on AC loads. It is not 100% accurate. So it won't work out in many cases, And this topic, is one of those cases. There are formulas for it though.

Is growing up in NJ enough of a Dark Side for you?

And may the Farce be with you!
