Tesla Coil MMC
I am currently trying to build a Tesla coil. However, due to a little mistake my MMC only has about 1/4th of the capacitance required to get it to resonate . Now I wonder what the best course of action would be. add a resistor to reduce the amount of amps to 1/4th of its maximum (6000 volt, 5 mA instead of 6000 volt, 20 mA), and thus the capacity required for resonance (I have a variable resistor here). Or just run it with full power, which would mean it would most likely not function as good as it could (spark gap fires 4 times where it only should fire once)
I am currently not capable of adding up extra capacitors to the bank due to a lack of money, but might decide to do this in the furture
Help would be appriciated.
