Re: [TCML] Choosing a Cap Size

Hey DC...

what are you using for 16" forms?? Im in the market for a new secondary form and seem to be having a bit if trouble location anything larger than 12" with lengths of more than 48".

If you have not yet wound the coil, use the largest dia you can.  With my
0.1 caps I always use 16" dia sec.  Sometimes up to 24" dia for even better
The 16" dia also works very well with a .06 uF cap.

Large inductance is the key and the inductance of a resonant transformer
goes up as the square of the radius of the sec coil.
