Original poster: "by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net>" <Parpp807-at-aol-dot-com> John C, Malcolm, I should know well that blundering into the truth is not the worst of outcomes. I have been following this thread on what I will call TC dynamics. That is, the measurement and design of TCs for the changes that must take place when the coil is operating and energy is being released; the moving (dynamic) state as distinguished from the usual static math we normally use in designing a coil. When I read about spark capacitance and resistance, and the voltage divider network formed by the spark R and the coil R, it all reminds me of Heisenberg: I think we should all be very uncertain. Until this current thread I have mostly considered the coil as having almost, repeat almost, as little effect on the spark as the gun has on the bullet once the bullet leaves the gun. In reality, this situation is much more complicated because the spark and the coil are operating within changing electric fields. The process boggles, and I wouldn't begin to know how to approach the math on this. Let the buyer beware but IMHO, there is a strong uncertainty factor here and you guys may not be measuring what you think you are measuring. The disruptive coil technology never had a chance to mature, and much of the math and physics may be unexplored. Do you guys consider your work as original research? Is there any text material available on the subject? Cheers, Ralph Zekelman
