. I used 32 1 ft by 1/2 inch aluminum

square tubes for each side of a plate capacitor: with

a 1/16th inch separation this read .73 nf for 12 by 16

inch plates. This took 64 aluminum square tubes in

total. However the same capacity could be obtained by

only using 4 X 9 = 36 tubes by building a coiled

capacity (9 winds in a square form)whereby using more

then just one side of the aluminum square conductors,

a higher capacity is gained per usage of the square

conductors. For the magic square winding case at

center wind disconnect, the dielectric barrier would

use double the amounts of windings expressing acting

internal capacity at center break then would a lateral

winding method. For the 9 magic square, 8 of the 12

internal capacities can be used for the calculation of

internal capacity, and both models show the same

capcity by meter of .73 nf. Now the inductance of

this coil model is ~ 57 uH @ 9 inch ave Radius; when

the center wind open capacitive state is given

conductivity. An arc gap can fluxuate between these L

and C values thus giving a resonant frequency, in this

case made by bringing an arc gap through the middle of

a coil construction designed to have maximum internal

capacity.

R(F) = 1/{6.28 sq rt [LC]}

=1/[6.28 * {2.04 *10^-7)]

= 780.5 khz

This figure is based on a mostly air gap between the

2D cap plates. Insertion of a full dielectric would

lower the frequency. Larger square arrays would be

predicted to do this also.

Steel windings are now in place for the center wind no 5

These now need connected by more steel around the corners

to form a complete (center) loop.(4 * 72 winds on the loop itself

at right angles to the loop itself; the windings are wrapped around

the middle aluminum segment.) LCR reading of 9 inch ave radius

is ~ 124 uH.( this is at 3 inch separation of inner corners, which

will be used as the standard for measurement comparisons.) Now we

shall see how the insertion of steel loops around the center winding

changes the inductance. Be back later when this is done.
