That sounds fantastic, Richard. Would it really be necessary to wind the
primary around copper tubing. If both are in a flat spiral, couldn't they
both lay on the same plane? Or would that be too much inductance? They could
each have their own tanks. If it was a wrapped tube, it would probably need
to be insulated to keep it cold enough all the way through the primary. This
is only a guess. I am not an engineer, but that seems like a lot of surface
area to absorb heat.
Either way the potential sounds great. Have you calculated how much power
in and out? Discharges?
I expect to see discharges from your work light up the horizon any day now.
