Re: [TCML] Wrong theory spreading

You should correct it!! Surely one of your papers could be cited in place of the German one. Jay Howson

The tuning relation for an ideal Tesla coil is L1C1=L2C2 (streamer loading included), as well known since the times of Tesla. The relation even appears in his notes and is easy to verify by a quite simple analysis. Some sites are saying that the ideal relation is L1C1=(1-k^2)L2C2 (L1, C1 in the primary, L2, C2 in the secondary, k is the coupling coefficient). This is not true for an ideal spark gap Tesla coil. Even for a DRSSTC designed for maximum efficiency the relation is (1-k^2)L1C1=L2C2. They cite an obscure paper in Japanese, impossible to find (wrong ISBN), as origin and a German site that does not prove the relation and appears to be dealing with solid-state designs (see Wikipedia and innumerable copies).Antonio Queiroz_______________________________________________Tesla mailing listTesla@tedward.pupman.comhttps://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla
