RE: Current in the Coil -

Hi Dave L.,

Thanks for the link.  That's quite an input, 2800A!  The peak current in the
Electrum secondary was 61A.  Do you know what kind of secondary coil cooling
mechanism they used, if at all?

Dave T.

OK - Electrum.  www.lod-dot-org

Secondary base current of 15.98A rms.
Secondary output current of 37.4A rms.

(the apparent disparity is, I assume, due to different break rates in the
two measurements.  Greg any comments?)

Yes, you probably could.
