Hi Bill,
	30kv-at-500mA = 15,000w, which is (just) do-
able (if 240v in this is a wall draw of 62A), 
100kv-at-500mA is 50,000w which is proabaly not 
parctical st this is a wall draw of 210A. 
Either way your dimmer will NOT work. If you 
are running from a 120v outlet as in the US 
then that will be 124 A and 420A respecively! 
You might consider posting a photo of the 
transformer so as we can identify what type it 
is likely to be.
