after reading many of the primary heating threads, I began to wonder if
( since we have so many great minds at work here ;) ) someone has
pondered the fact that we lose way too much energy in the spark gap that
could be effectively transposed into the secondary/capacitor. Is there
any way to reduce the losses in the spark gap, or is this a mute subject???
there is alot of energy lost ... consider the light produced, the heat
produced... if we could only regain that energy and put it where it
needs to go..... maybe a 20% increase in streamer lenght ... if not
come on people lets give it a thought or 10 .... just maybe we can come
up with a new approach ...
hmmmmmmm deep in thought
