	...and other things being equal, more voltage drives more current.
	so raising the voltage should raise the current.

	(In resonant systems there can be non obvious effects.  And in
	grounded Tesla systems, just as there is a voltage peak at the
	there is a Current peak at the bottom.  At least until break out.)
