Re: [TCML] My Hemisphere/Toroid with Unconnected Top Sphere results

Interesting situation.  As Bart says, the change in C and Fr
is small.   The floating sphere must be modifying the field
distribution such that streamer formation is encouraged.

The tuning adjustments reported suggest that the floating sphere is
behaving rather differently than the connected sphere.  The capacitance
calculations refer to a connected sphere only, in which the sphere is
at the same potential as the topload.  Without the connection, the
sphere will float to its own potential - a capacitive divider is formed
and the overall field around the topload/sphere will be different.

This looks like a situation that can be modelled.

Sounds great Paul - would not mind hearing some more on the modelling part,
as this is not something I have been able to find information on....
