Re: wirelength LC derivation,

One may wish to see these two papers that much more rigorously define Tesla coil secondary inductor internal currents and voltages.

Hi Jim

(1)  Assuming an infinite solenoid is a classic argument, not one we

indicates. This merely owes up to the fact that solenoids have self
capacitance that contributes to the sum of capacitance.

Actually where the derivation really breaks down, as applied to Tesla
coils, is that it assumes that the current in each wind at any given
instant in time is the same. Also it does not directly address the
issue of node formation (a clear indication that current is not the
same in each wind at any given instant in time).
