Andreas - For the TC parameters you can start with the JHCTES Ver 3.1 computer program at http://home.san.rr-dot-com/jcouture/tesla This program has 30 TC parameters. The Ver 4.0 will have about 46 parameters including coupling, mutual inductance, secondary voltage, efficiencies, etc. The programs are for classical TC only. There is not enough empirical information available on magnifiers, etc, to make this kind of program possible.

I do not plan to build a professional test facility in a way like this: "Here's the Coil - now let's see the pecentages of losses in it". My first aim is to proof statements about losses in the primary, mainly filter, transformer, cap, inductance. Without secondary, i use the following approach for the Voltage: U(t)=U0*exp (-t*delta)*cos ... My first setup is like this: A primary circuit (with MMC, acts also as voltage divider for the oscilloscope) is driven by a small OBIT with max. 3kVeff. Primary L is about 15micro-H, C is 6,67nF. Gap is extreme poor (two copper wires). Now i look on the screen and notice some values of the ring-down. >From these values I calculate the factor delta, which is equal to R/(2L). So i get a value for an R which is the sum of all losses. In further time, I will change many parameters, esp. the gap, of the setup and will find different values for R. I know, a gap has no constant resistance, but the approach of others (like constant voltage drop) is also not exact because of the short pulses. The first mesurement says: R=1,88Ohm (all losses together) Can You tell me about these 3 dozen TC parameters you speak off? Maybe I left some out. Thanks and greetings from poor-weather-germany.
