# [TCML] 100 PPS vs 500 PPS vs 1500 PPS...

```Well it's hard to imagine for me a Tesla transformer with 0.2 Joules tank energy which could break 3 feet gap.
No matter how high PPS rate is used.

Sorry Scott, Dex,
Sounds like you both need a refresher in dimensional analysis (or in basic definitions)
1?Joule/sec= 1 Watt, 1 watt/sec does NOT= 1 joule.
2 joules in 1 sec = 2 Watts, NOT 2 watts per second.
?
1 watt/sec=1 joule/sec^2 which would imply a system in wnich the power was constantly increasing increasing?all the time?it was on.
?Therefore, the concept of watts per second or power per second has no meaning in a TC.

Hey Dex...?
?
okay..?
1 watt per second = 1 joule 2 joules in 1 second = 2 watts per second ( not 1000W)?
2 watts/500= .004 joules per pulse?
?
1) 2J / 500 = .004 J/per pulse?
2) .66J/1500 = .00044 J/per pulse?
3) .2/ 5000 = .00004 J/per pulse?
each drop in Joules per level drops overall power per second...?
?
What you may wanting to be understanding is reverse of what you said...?
?
how about 2 J per pulse????
?
then you would have?
2J per pulse X 500 pulses in 1 second = 1000W/sec?
?
Likewise:?
...6666J per pulse X 1500 pulses in 1 second = 999ish W/sec?
...2J per pulse X 5000 pulses in 1 second = 1000W/sec?
?
now you have an avg power of 1000W per second which would keep the avg streamer length at about 50 - 55".?
Since the frequency of pulses increase dramatically, the resistances in the primary ( inductance wise) increase dramatically also, thus leading to reduced flow to and from the capacitor resulting in a loss of overall power to the EM field supplying the secondary coil... which results in a loss of streamer length...?
?
hope this helped?
