I do mean the secondary, on height 1, this is the height from the bottom of the secondary to ground plane and height 2 is the distance from ground plane to the top of the secondary winding. Example say height 1 is 10 and height 2 is 34. I think this means from the bottom of the secondary to the ground plane is 10 inches and from the ground plane to the height 2 is 34 and means my secondary is 24. Is this correct so far..? -----Original Message----- From: Tesla [mailto:tesla-bounces@xxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Bart Anderson Sent: December 30, 2020 1:24 PM To: Tesla Coil Mailing List Subject: Re: [TCML] Javatc question Hi Shaun, Okay, well, I am a little stumped at your description. You say under the "secondary coil...." and then begin talking about "primary" values in the second paragraph. So I am going to assume you meant to say "primary coil" in the first paragraph. Height 1 is the distance from the end of the primary of Radius 1 to the ground plane. Height 2 is the distance from the end of the primary of Radius 2 to the ground plane. Now, you didn't mention the type of primary you are working on (flat, helical, conical, etc.). So let me just throw down a few examples of each and maybe from those you can figure it out. BTW, if you click on the heading in each section (SECONDARY, PRIMARY, etc.) it will open up a help file that has graphics to help explain how the inputs should be inserted. Some examples: 1) Flat coil (Archimedes Spiral): Radius 1 = 4, Radius 2 = 8, Height 1 = 20, Height 2 = 20 (note height 1 and 2 are the same at 20 inches above the ground plane). 2) Helical coil: Radius 1 = 8, Radius 2 = 8, Height 1 = 20, Height 2 = 30 (note the difference between height 1 and 2 is 10 inches and Radius 1 and 2 are the same. So a coil 16 inch diameter that is 10 inches tall). 3) Conical coil: Radius 1 = 4, Radius 2 = 8, Height 1 = 30, Height 2 = 20 (this coil is a cone where the smaller radius of the coil is at 30 inches and the larger radius is at 20 inches). 4) Inverted Conical coil: Radius 1 = 4, Radius 2 = 8, Height 1 = 20, Height 2 = 30 (this is an inverted cone where the smaller radius is at 20 inches and the larger radius is at 30 inches). Remember Height 1 and Radius 1 are always together for one end of the coil and Height 2 and Radius 2 are the other end of the coil regardless of it's shape. You might think of in terms of each end of the coil has an X,Y value (width and height). Anyway, maybe those examples will help explain how the inputs work. Try putting those into Javatc, Calculate, then go look at the graphic.
