RE: Current in the Coil - was oil dielectric

Hi Dave,

It depends on the transformer (I think you mentioned a 15/30 NST), primary
cap value, primary coil value, type of gap and break rate.  But in most
cases, the peak current will be close to 60mA.  There is no simple formula
other than 2X the transformer rating.  However, MicroSim can number crunch
the system and come up with a very close number.
