No, actually it is very good.
For example, set for Stephen's coil using the Java graph, V=21.2kV,
R=15mOhms, C=12nF, L=62.5uH. The graph result shows 294A.
Ip = Vp x sqrt(Cp/Lp) = 21.2kV x sqrt(12nF/62.5uH) = 294A
Javatc shows 294A also (transformer section: output titled Instantaneous
Like any program, it's a matter of getting the inputs real.
Also interesting is the cap voltage graph (click the check box).
