I realize the load will change with coils.  I have demonstrated
this with neons as well.  I removed some shunts to get the neons
to put out more current.  On average, the three 15kv, 45ma neons
pulled around 7 amps each.  When I changed the capacitance from
.012uf to .024uf, the three neons tripped my 30 amp breaker 

Anyways I already got a chart from another member of the list.
