Unfortunately, that approach has limited applicability to cap discharge systems which impart fixed energy shots to the secondary and also include a primary spark gap which loses a lot of power if the primary inductance is low. ------------ Jay was using a static gap. He used it to build an electron beam gun that could shoot electrons into the air.
