Re: Parallel and Series LCR Circuit Qs
Surely, this is why Tesla always had a tuning coil that he would adjust while
the coil was running. There are too many what-ifs that even today we cannot
precisely account for, so tuning on the fly seems to be the best way to go(as
long as it can be done safely.
