Thanks Adys!
Its all similar, which is good.

I posted a post and removed it as i was a bit wrong there.

I did XL and XC calculations today with 1nF for the cell and 5.48H for the two chokes with core.
I found out that at 2150hz XL=74,028 ohm and XC = 74,026 ohm
I know this is all theory, but the thruth should not be far away from this.
The chokes  are 75.5ohms and 71 ohms in my case DC measured.
If 2 chokes are on 1 core, and you have the famous Don Gable spec coils, then see if you can get higher voltage over Choke1 with cell then your input voltage of yr transformer.....

cheers

One other thing:

The 2 chokes are 5.48H in my case.#The fun with Meyer  is to balance the two out with the cell.
1 a little bit more Henrys then the other.
That where the tinkering starts......

cheers

After re reading my emails and posts of unclefester aka Tad
http://www.ionizationx.com/index.php/topic,402.msg7093.html#msg7093
i did a quick math of his cell, as his tubes are around twice the size of a standard resonance cell of meyer and he got 7 in parallel.
I came to a total of around 15nF
XC at 42khz = 253 ohms
XL at 42khz for 253 ohms is an inductance of 960uH

And that is a small coil........
Tad said that adding some pico farads to the cell helped him finding resonance a bit easier.

If i check about what type of coils he was talking, then i think he was right and telling the truth.

cheers again.

The questions is now:
Go for higher frequency with smaller coils or lower with bigger coils.
At least bigger coils have a higher DC resistance and so automatically reduce amp flow...

MAN.....ws i bussy or not today? Finally back on track to solve Meyer.
