[TCML] Bulbs between L and C values

Instead of using a ferromagnetic transformer to achieve a voltage rise necessary for the primary arc gap, I have employed a higher freq. (465 hz)( motor driven) input 3 phase alternator connected to pancake style primaries fashioned from Radio Shack MegaCable speaker wire. Mutual Inductance BETWEEN all three phases is employed to gain a higher Q factor, beyond the scope of this introduction, but this delivers an acting Q factor of 10 on each phase; and 17 between the midpoints of each phases LC series segments: those resonances theoretically being 120 degrees apart in time by their line connected delta inputs. Atop these three sets of primary spirals, two(air core) high induction coils of ~  2.4 H, 23 gauge wire spools @ 140 ohms are employed to gain an additional voltage rise. In between these source freq resonant secondaries are dual winding sets of MegaCable speaker wire connected in series. These are used to monitor the magnetic field between those
 primaries and secondaries, to gain an understanding of the magnetic interactions between those coil sets of LC values. Also those (source freq 465 hz tuned) secondaries achieve a higher voltage rise when more loosely coupled with their primary source then if they sat directly atop those primaries. In the final step the C value used for the secondaries source freq resonance is also used as the same C value to be employed on the tesla primar(ies). Thus the tesla coil system to be used in conjunction with this system must be designed around that designated C value. Ordinarily then for just a single phase system when the primary arc gap path through the primary coil and exhibits a short, the secondary then goes down to what would show as its reactive amperage consumption alone, without that C value attached in the loop which has been shorted by a pathway including the primary. There becomes a distinct advantage in employing TWO (120 degree) secondaries
 placed correctly in series with TWO primaries fashioned to a bipolar TC system: simply meaning that the currents leading to the arc gap on each primary are made to travel in opposite directions. For a meager 12 volt alternator input the following high voltage arcs are shown between the 10 inch diameter salad bowls with ruler extensions:
Here is the system with xenon and krypton bulbs placed BETWEEN top capacities of somewhat equal (flat) surface areas counting only the inside area of the aluminum plates. A 20 volt input is used here. It stands to reason that just like in a source frequency series resonance where the electric and magnetic fields are 90 degrees out of phase, the same thing must be occurring in the high frequency resonance.  Thus a voltage exists between the top globe polar capacity and the secondary coil itself. Ordinarily we only look at the generated voltage at the ending secondary LC wire connection which should obviously be higher then that between the elements. Other coilers may try interposing line connected bulbs between the secondary coil and the top load capacity to see this voltage effect for themselves.
