Re: SRSG with only 1.3x LTR cap

Personally, I wouldn't try a SRSG with a tank cap of 1.3*Cres. The
voltage could get very high if not timed just right. If you do try
this, be sure you set your safety gaps correctly and they will almost
certainly fire at most timing settings. Maybe you can find a setting
where they dont fire as it is very important for safety gaps to not
fire if you want a smooth running coil.

I used to be on here quite a bit back in the day, but got too busy
at college to keep up. I just finished my first year of a
Electrical/Computer Engineering double-major program at U. Dayton in
Ohio, and I'm back home and ready to play with my 6" coil again.
Last summer, my dad and I finished up a pretty decent SRSG.
Currently my coil is running a 12/60 NST, 12-segment Cu Pipe static
gap, and .017uF cap, which is about 1.3x LTR (assuming resonant is
.013uF). I would like to throw that SRSG on there and see how it
works, but I'm not sure if my cap is big enough.... I thought it had
been previously recommended to me to double my cap to .034uf which
is about 2.6x LTR.
What do you guys think? Is it safe for me to try the SRSG with this
cap or should I wait until I add more capacitance?
Thanks - its good to be back for a little while...
