RE: Current in the Coil - was oil dielectric

I had not thought of that. Good point. Do you know the formula for
figuring the maximum amperage for 90 degrees out of phase at resonance?
Terry, do you have information about this on your website?

Not true - That's at unity power factor. If the current and voltage are out
of phase, i.e. a non-resistive load (a TC is DEFINITELY non-resistive), then
the power factor is less than one.
You could have 15 kV, 200 A, and still only have 250 W. It just depends on
the power factor.
