This paper covers a number of measurement techniques that can be employedin testing and evaluating many of the SEC  Exciter  circuits designed by Dr. Stifflerwhile avoiding the potential for error readings caused by the powerful electric fieldssurrounding the Exciters .
SEC  Exciters  unless properly shielded produce both a primary and secondary setof electrical fields during operation and both of these fields can produce localizedinduction into low quality, improperly shielded or incorrectly connected test equipment.Because there is a general interest in SEC  Exciters  among Alternative EnergyGroups and individuals a means to qualify and quantify operation of these circuitswithout costly lab equipment and specialized test environments became necessary.
II Measurement Circuits
First and foremost in working with SEC  Exciters  is the required isolation of theExciter from its power source, regardless of the type of the source which could be one ormore of; a line powered power supply, battery or solar cell. To accomplish this manydifferent filters were tried that ranged from simple to complex with component costs tomatch and one general design was found that worked best and requires a small monetaryinvestment along with a simple circuit layout.The filter found to be most effective at providing the required decoupling was found to bea relatively simple and inexpensive multi-stage filter built from readily available RFFerrite Beads and Ceramic Capacitors. The circuit diagram for the power supply filter isshown in Fig: 1, along with a parts list for the components.
