When looking at Vtop, I think it is appropriate to look at the voltage as a
function of capacitance at the moment in the cycle when all the energy is
stored in the capacitance of the resonator. I was also looking at peak
volts for this value while running the coil. Anyway, that moment of peak
voltage can be expressed as Vtop = eVp x sqrt(Cpri/Cee). eVp is the
effective voltage at the break rate and charge rate on the cap, Cpri is
obvious, and Cee is a lumped capacitance to represent the equivalent
capacitance required to store all the energy in the resonator at the
instant in the cycle when all the energy is momentarily stored in the
capacitance. Cee is an output of Geotc (thus, Javatc has the ability to use
it for Vtop).

eVp was causing the drop.

It had to with the charge rate of the cap at 100 bps. I didnt save the data
when I worked this out. Just kind of worked it out and placed the numbers
found in the reply. I just ran it again and realized the picture I showed
before was short by 100 inches (secondary; I input 150 instead of 250).
Thus, the toroid was adjusted to height. The numbers change somewhat (196pF
on topload, Fres closer to your 25kHz: I showed 28kHz when all is said and
done). The 312.5kW still show 2.8MV because cap volts (eVp) is down to
27.8kV. This is due to a charge time constant of 0.5 on the 2.5uF cap when
running at 100 bps, where the time reference is 10ms (50 Hz 1/2 cycle). The
full charge time on the 2.5uF cap is 100ms with a 312.5kW supply at 50kV.

Take care,
Bart
