I think the only advantage to this "equidrive" configuration is in split
bipolar coils, where two coils are run off of one primary circuit to give
opposite charges on two toroids.  In this case the equidrive allows the
center of the primary and secondary to be grounded, because the circuit
symmetry insures that the centers are always at zero volts potential.
