RE: coil discharge color

The secondary system of a tesla coil can store enough energy to produce a
1000 ampere discharge, but the time duration of such a pulse would be
extremely short. I remember reading about a General Electric x-ray unit
powered by a tesla coil with a steady output of 1000,000V/30MA. The resonant
frequency was 120 Hz. The entire outfit was contained in a steel tank filled
with gas under high pressure. The primary system was supplied with over
200,000 watts and was cooled by flowing water.
