# Re: [TCML] Is there an ideal frequency you should build around?

Hello,

There is a sort of relationship between power and frequency, but
only indirectly.  This is because a TC of a certain power will tend
to be of a certain size (within some range), and that size will tend
to determine the frequency (again within some range).  Still, TC's
based on a 12/30 nst could be designed to run well on quite a wide
range of frequencies.

I came up with a set of formulas for designing a TC based on
power input, but I can't remember them offhand.  My TT-42 TC
uses a robust 12/30 nst and gives 42" sparks.  The specs are
here:  (however website might be not working)

A good TC design aid is Bart's "JavaTC" classic program which you

Subject: [TCML] Is there an ideal frequency you should build around?

Hi, I'm building my first Tesla coil and was wondering if there is a
certain frequency you should try to reach with respect to the power of your
transformer? I found one formula, but I'm not sure about it,kHz= 3032.5xw^
-2767 - 96.4, not sure what the ^ is or if the formulas accurate. I've got
a 12kv 30 mA nst giving me 360 watts. I'm building it on paper first and
trying to get a good understanding of it and at the moment my secondary
will have a frequency of 322.6 kHz
