I can't see how. If what you mean by 'higher freq. composite waveform' is a
higher break rate, 6 firings per cycle of the mains, that one would be
forced to adopt using the 3 caps/gaps config. One can in fact run much
higher break rates using a DC system, however high break rates tend to yield
very poor efficiencies, so people tend to stick in the region 100-300pps.

Yes. As the frequency gets higher the sparks get shorter, due to increased
