I tried to copy it, but the Netscape 2 table just skewed across 3
pages and was unintelligible.
here is a short clip of the table:
bank energy /kJ 1.34 40 780 (560) 30 (20) 187 (120)
bank voltage /kV 20 16 100 (80) 200 (160) 300 (240)
The net was very slow, I try again tomorrow night.
Notice that they started out with 1340 joules of energy at 20kV for a
plasma pinch thermonuclear reactor!
If WE started with 500kV and 33pF => 4 joules. ;) sheepish grin: I'm
only off by 2 orders of magnitude;( so much for my first impressions.
1MV -at- 33pF => 16 j
5MV -at- 33pf => .413 kj
5.13MV -at- 100pf => 1.34 kj
notice that I've only increased 1 order of magnitude in voltage and a
factor of 3 in capacitance.
Has anyone ever measured the output voltage of their TC? Marx
