Whoa! You're just a bit optimistic :^)
Here are some preliminary operating specs for the new coil:
Input power - 130kVA (380V, 200A, 3-phase)
Resonant freq - 38kHz
I have tech brief on a German coil (circa 1964) that ran at 20.3 kHz, and
if I understand correctly it operated at 200kVA, using a single static
spark gap with an air blast across it!!!
