Original poster: "Terry Fritz" <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net> Hi John, I think the 57.3% is indeed correct. Look at the picture of Matt's coil at: http://hot-streamer-dot-com/temp/MattD1.gif The difference between his and most systems is that he has two terminals. The terminals are right over and under each other. This vastly reduces their individucal free space capacitance's since they are right next to each other. The energy stored between the two toroids is about zero so the effective capacitance is far less than if they were significantly far apart. This is an advantage of E-Tesla6 in that it figures these nasty situations out :-)) Hopefully Matt will be able to fine the true frequency so we can see how close the predictions are. I am putting my bets on 287253.72 Hz :-)) Cheers, Terry At 01:34 PM 5/20/2001 -0700, you wrote: > >Terry, Matt, All - > >I did a check on Matt's coil using E-Tesla6 and found the toroid capacitance >reduction to be 57.3% compared to the approximate 20% reduction that >E-Tesla6 showed for other coils.
