Hi Adam ....
what you have here is a consumption of power used by the transformer (
in direct short method minimal power is being used) the power used will
be the transformer core eddy currents and hysteresis ... now if you
add a coil to it and then retest you will see a higher current draw on
the down side of the caps.... the best ive seen so far is a 50% drop
with caps online and coil running ( obviously im not using the full
amount of power available ;) )
