[TCML] MAX SPARK FOR FIXED VOLTAGE

1 MV single pulse with positive polarity can break 11 feet air gap.
To accomplish that they used 100/1000 microseconds pulse.
I think that giant DRSSTC with 1 MV can smash the gap 14 feet long in
a 'single shot' applying optimum rate of HF envelope growth.
BTW,Dr.Resonance is a very cool nick :)

It's quite possible to get 4-5 ft sparks at 100 kV IF the power level and
rep rates are high enough. As an example a typical coil running 450 pps on
the break wheel, with a 100 nF capacitor (0.1 uF), runs a true 1 million
volts with a 14 ft. long sec spark.
