Re: [TCML] secondary variable frequency
What if the "new cap" had a significantly higher capacitance than the
existing equivalent capacitance of the secondary and topload? wouldn't the "new
cap" then predominate?
No it won't. Ctotal (series)= (C1xC2)/(C1+C2). It always ends up a
little smaller even with a huge cap (when in series). Just use C2 for
your "added" cap value and make it as many magnitudes larger than C1
that you like. It will always be smaller.
This is one of the issues I'm mulling over in the "discharging a DC cap
through the secondary" experiment... And even with a small cap of the same
order of magnitude as the secondary and topload, the connection of the small
cap to the bottom of the secondary must have a significance beyond just adding
to the overall capacitance.
It's not adding to the overall capacitance. It's taking away from the
overall capacitance. This is "capacitance" were talking about. Not
inductors or resistors. If you want to add C to the secondary, go
parallel with it. See Tesla's patents. Several patents show external C
Could one run a "transmission line" from the topload to another toroid some
distance away? And then use breakouts on this second topload to force it to
act as the main discharge point?
Not sure. I doubt it. The transmission line would likely be the breakout
point if of a 2 coil systems normal turns. Note in maggy's, the driver
has only 200 to 300 turns. The extra coil is the high turn coil. If the
driver had high turns, the transmission line would be a serious breakout
Seems safer and easier than a magnifier
configuration, but with all the spacing benefits. Plus easier to make and
transport two separate small toroids than one big one.
