In considering a few very basic equations:
E = I R
I = E/R
P = E I (assuming same phase)
P = I^2 R Wow! Maybe TC discharge power IS the result of I^2. Don't
think so. As arc channel R decreases does P decrease? Dig
a little deeper.
P = E^2 /R Ahh, here it is. Remember E is the independant variable
and may exist statically or dynamically. I is the
dependant variable and may only exist dynamically and
depends on E and R.
On the eve of my departing to Richmond and the World's Greatest
Teslathon, I will repost some old Tesla List posts on these topics
under the title TC Electrostatics Revisited. Perhaps it will jog the
memories of a few or perhaps others will muse over the contents and
perhaps find value.
