RE: [TCML] (no subject)

i need to design a mmc capactor for the solid state, find the resonent frequency of the secondary with and without the torrid find the frequency of the primary and tune it to the secondary and then order the kit from eastern voltage reasearch and built it... its gunna be alot of work mainly im looking for advice and how to calculate theese things
