Original poster: "John H. Couture by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net>" <couturejh-at-worldnet.att-dot-net> Hi Kurt - Thank you for the info on your coil/s self capacitance formula based on the Medhurst K-value table. The formula I used for the JHCTES Ver 3.1 and Ver 3.2 programs is the following Medhurst one. Ccoil = 5.08*3*((.0563*Hs/Rs)+(.38*sqrt(Rs/Hs)) +.08) This formula appears to have an accuracy of better than 2% for Tesla coils with secondaries with H/D ratios of less than about 5 when compared with measured values. The accuracy of the measured values are not shown so it is not possible to know exactly the accuracy of the above formula. As most Tesla coils are designed with H/D ratios of less than 5 I do not think I will change the JHCTES at this time. In fact I am amazed the JHCTES is producing these accuracies.

The function, due to its relatively few parameters etc., behaves plausibly for slight extrapolation of H/D > 8 (tried up to 10). Eqn K=a+b*x+c*x^(1.5)+d*ln(x)/x+e/x^2 a 3.174612104 b -0.350587741 c 0.087994211 d -4.628698069 e -2.451606171 Then Co[pF] = K*D[cm] I'm aware however, Medhurst himself proposed a formula: K= 0.1126*x + 0.08 + 0.27/sqrt(x) ...with Co[pF] = K*D[cm] which he claims to fit his 5% precise data, for 0.163 < H/D < 29.2, closely (to 2..3% --> I'm getting 4.8% avg. and 7.7%max. error for H/D=1...8). But I've seen, my own fit is introducing less error in addition to his 5% table, for the range of 1 < H/D < 8 mostly used for TC's.
