Re: Calculating capacitance of stacked toroids . . .

Actually, the archives came back up and the general consensus was that:
Ctotal = 50% (C1+C2)
where: C1 = capacitance toroid 1
C2 = capacitance toroid 2
This doesn't seem to make sense: If C1=C2 then Ctot= 50%(2*C1)=C1 implies
zero gain from adding the second toroid. I think that Ctot=
(C1+C2)/2 +50%(C1+C2)/2 i.e. the average value plus 50% would seem closer
to my experience.
