Has anyone ever used electromagnets on the spark gap in order to
remove the spark? Logically, if the discharging spark gap creates a
plasma, and a plasma are charged particles in motion, shouldn't the
magnetic fields of nearby electromagnets have an effect? The idea
comes from a book on Tesla that had one of his presentations in it.
Tesla mentions that he had two electromagnets arranged closely and
perpendicular to the spark gap.
