What Capacitor size for a 4 stack MOT Tesla coil? Answered
I have just bought a 4 stack MOT transformer in a case and oil filled it says 8.6kv on it but no idea of amperage, I have a large variable ballast and hooked it up to my test jacobs ladder and it pulls about 10amp and really fires the ladder well.
My coil has a 6inch by 29inch winding on the secondary and a Synchronous spark gap (200bps) but I cant seem to get a decent spark off it
I have an MMC of 44.0nF @20kv at the moment
