[TCML] Primary LC efficiency
I was wondering if there is any advantage in an LC circuit to gain better
efficiency by either using more C or more L.
As a rough idea, maybe 10uH 10nF, or 20nF 5uH, or 5nF 20uH type of
Going by capacitance is normally the evil, a higher L figure would give a
higher Q ?
The problem with higher inductance is higher resistance which lowers Q also.
From one of my number crunching sessions, resistance goes up with
inductance. It seemed pointless going for higher inductance as the extra
resistance of the cable would counteract the gains in inductance. However
if you can increase the inductance without increasing the resistance then it
would seem a good way to go.
Then comes the LR vs C of the primary, C seems the evil so a higher
inductance would be better. However if the wire dia is kept the same, then
resistance wise, going for a higher L could be bad.
So overall, there does not seem to be any real way to improve primary
