[TCML] BIGPIG secondary dies...
Finally after 9 or so years of service, the BIGPIG secondary died, and I
must say impressively at that. There was an arc that formed between
windings near an older repair job which caused " a small fire" ;) seems
the Behr 50 coating is flamable to some degree!
Anyway I was considering a rebuild of the coil and began playing around
with JavaTC and I was getting some conflicting info compared to WinTesla
outputs. Javatc states a 6.7 turn primary as compared to 13.7 in
Wintesla all parameters being the same for all hardware involved. ( and
considering that the BIGPIG was tuned to 13.5 turns and worked well ).
Why the difference between the 2 programs on tuning point?
And for last... is there some very definative info on JavaTC
terminology so I can figure out what is meant in the output fields of
the primary and secondary calculated sheets??
