ts meyer says the water is a resistor for the vic... not necessarily must be at resonance...

Meyers does refer to the WFC as a cap and does refer to resistance is at its highest at resonance and the VIC as an RLC circuit.

he also say say that the wiper arm fine tunes to the dielectric proprieties of water,, i think by that makes reference to adjusting the impedance... the lower the resistance the lower will be the voltage due to current on the cell.... however as high voltages are present i'm presuming the cells will have high voltage across it as a consequence of that . but not only that ...

i think the resonant cavity determine the base wavelength the system must resonate and thereafter the chokes and coils must be arranged to match such operation...

what i mean is that the resonant frequency is not a simple value... it has some basic factors that determines its frequency but i guess we are far from an equation or something like that. i'm reading on some books and on the books its written that this is a kind of art to create this kind of lines with coils...
Frankly, I think you're over complicating it.

well i'm simulating it all and i find that if i match some specific requirements i can get the high voltage... the thing is its pretty easy to get high voltage but you need some amps to make it,,, but there is another way to get high voltage resonance but with no power dissipation aka undamped waves as tesla first said.. the system does not consume power.. because its not current pulses but voltage pulses.. do you know what i mean?

its possible to do with also capacitors and coils.. . i think its worth the shot,,

What i think you don't see is that although a transmission line can have functionalities close related to lumped components... when the wave travels thru distributed parameters it can be undamped so far i understood... maybe i got it wrong and indeed there is a dissipation and thereto damping.. well i'm not sure...

I have the felling that this coils has so much capacitance that the ringing impede the high voltage to grow...

I think I just burned out my one of my coils with a voltage surge.

that is sad, i know how much work it takes to get them done...

i hardly see any high voltage with those coils...

i know how to do hig voltages but using low turns.... not this way

wouldn't it be thats why the so called resistance of the coils i mean the stainless steel wire .. after all meyer wrote in the tech doc that its used to prevent ringing and maintain signal stability...

The high voltage spikes work just as I describe them throughout this topic.

So far all the coils are checking out. It's really weird though because all of a sudden the entire circuit is behaving differently now even though everything is checking out so far.

I'll have to do some more digging tomorrow.

Incidentally, I just used a drill and a spool to wind these coils.  I'm done with the slow tedious method.   I wound all my coils in about 10 mins, except for the L2 because I had to make it variable.
