start by reading some of the older IEEE journals and other trade press - the large industrial experiments both for aircraft safety (HERF testing and so on, Do-160) and power line equipment testing, have used very high voltages and currents. Also, some of the particle physics related work has involved high energy.

> Dear All,
> I'm developing a documentary where we are looking to create the largest possible arc of artificial lightning. Using existing systems - what kind of length could I expect to see, and where does such a system exist? So far, I can find Greg Leyh's Electrum, Bill Wysock's 13M and the Cauac Twin Coils, all of them seem to be able to produce an arc around 50ft in length. However, I read that Tesla himself was able to create artificial lightning arc in the order of 130ft - is this still the record?
