Spark Gap Tesla Coils (SGTC) / How many Farads should my bank have?
« on: April 21, 2019, 08:41:25 PM »
Hello there!

I'm building a small Tesla coil (a little bit taller than 1 foot) and I was wondering how many Farads should my capacitor bank have to I get bigger arcs. My power supply is around 15kV (flyback from CRT tv) and I will build the capacitors (saltwater capacitors) from 16oz bottles. I was thinking about something around 10.5nF, is this enough?
