 On either end of the examples, quenching is a problem.  The 28kv system can
 ignite a long arc just by it's potential.  The 7.2kv'er will try to powerarc
 just by sheer current (several hundred MA at least)

Hi Sundog all,

As I'm certainly no expert on this matter, it seems that I've heard 
that the current is what determines the actual strength of the mag-
netic field (ampere-turns)? Maybe some of the more knowledgable
engineers on list could respond to this?
