Aaah,steady state.. *maybe good for CW mode operating
funs* ..and True TC is ,naturally, pulse excited

I asked.It is not so significant and, is usually
overcome by the trick of increasing originaly "turn to
immediate neighbour turn capacity" by factors between
and 3 (depending on coil structure).
With coil having more turns the trick works better.

And that is what I was affraid of.

In other words you would like to predict Q of
(in  spark unloaded case) or I misinterpret you here? 
I see another problem here since you mentioned only
wire resistance I^2R looses if I remember correct
counting for damping effects?
No sparking coils are quite a good radiators of EM
waves and posess certain radiation resistance which is
comparable with wire losses.How do you include this
one in your model ?

Based on pure circuit theory I can write also a
"brutal force method" program which would deal with
simoultanes solving of set of thousands of diff. eqs. 
for points of the winding in time ,using common usual
math. methods for solving such set of eqs for given
boundary ,innital conditions (I hope I used proper
The programming problem being adressed to computer to
accomplish the task (time  for instance:days,months 
Thus ,in that context I see significant programming
problem there.
