RE: Magnifier information

Antonio Carlos M. de Queiroz http://www.coe.ufrj.br/~acmq/ provides
substantial information w/rt magnifiers.  Also, see U.S. patent No.
4,833,431 which provides specific values for a magnifier, and several papers
on high-voltage transformer designs.  McDonnell Douglas Corp. thought enough
Bieniosek's magnifier design to obtain a patent.  Note that the patent has
expired and is now in the public domain.  I still wonder McDonnell Douglas
Corp. was up to, and just how good of a design is disclosed.  The primary
capacitance is a mere 0.2 micro F, and K is given to be a whopping 0.675,
(read high rep-rate with rapid power transfer).   Ouch!  Quench that gap!

Have fun and good-luck,

     I am heavily interested in building a well designed magnifier to try
and revoke some of the criticisms of them, but I am finding the internet to
be an extremely limited source of information (on magnifiers anyway).  I
was wondering if anyone knows of some good books or websites that would
helpful to me in designing my setup.  So far this one has been the only
site of much value it seems but most of the discussion is only on two coil
tesla coils.  I am only 15 though so funding should be difficult but I am
hoping to make a 10Kva system in a year or two, so I will have plenty of
time to research.  Thanks for any help.
