Hi Rick,

Actually 1.5 kVA at 14,400 volts would be closer to 100 mA ( 104.2
mA, to be exact ). Also, potential transformers are very conservative-
ly rated and very robust since they are designed for use by the utility
electric campanies. A PT like this can easily put out 3 to 5 times its
nameplate rating for short time intervals and can probably put out 2X
its output rating all day long! A PT is a real jewel for a Tesla coiler :-)
