Original poster: "David Thomson by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <dave-at-volantis-dot-org> Hi Malcolm, Malcolm: >>>Agreed about the heating caused by current, but the current flowing in the wires of an air-cored transformer can easily be in the tens of Amperes range. Depends how much energy you feed in doesn't it? Dave T.: >> Point me to a Tesla coil that claims tens of amperes in the secondary. Malcolm: >I can state with confidence that none of the coils I have built right down to the smallest have peak currents lower than a milliamp and most currents are far higher. ... For an example of a small coil which has secondary currents exceeding 1mA (considerably so in fact) I refer you to the tssp website which graphs current and voltage profiles for one such coil. I'm still interested in reading about the coils with the tens of amps in the secondary if you happen to think of them. I think I can easily design a coil with 1mA in the secondary. The tens of amps coils would have 10,000 times more current. I could learn a lot from reading about these monster coils. Dave
