If you want to start to simulate your coil, the necessacary software can
be had here:
It is the latest trial version of Microsim.
Of course the model is here:
I know hardly nothing about this stuff, and yet find it amazing that it
is possible to model a coil.
It is possible to pick up a lot of stuff about the charging of the cap,
by simulating it, something it would only be possible with a real coil,
and f.eks. a fiberprobe (hint, hint)
BTW, Terry has made a model for me that has 4 gaps in it, so that
multible breaks per periode are possible, and using that has shown how
the cap charges much better on the down-slope of the charging waweform,
much to learn by simulating, fer sure!
That model is here:
