Sigurthr's DRSSTC Calculator

This is a simple CLI (command line interface) calculator program to assist you in planning and designing your Doubly Resonant Solid State Tesla Coil. There is no installation process necessary; simply download the .rar, unpack it to a directory of your choosing, and run the .exe.  It is for Windows operating systems only.

Please note; only enter numerical characters when prompted for data. Entering letters or symbols will result in the calculator program crashing.

A README.txt file is provided in the .rar to explain the calculations behind the program and help the user get accustomed to its operation.

The program intakes simple parameters such as: DC Bus Voltage, Primary Inductance, Primary Capacitor Voltage Rating, Capacitor Derating Percentage, and Resonant Frequency. It then computes the Maximum Possible Peak Current and Voltage for the Primary Tank for the maximum usable Burst Length before the capacitor voltage is exceeded.

Update: 24/2/2015 I'm pushing a new version of this up to the download repository because it was brought to my attention that some users are still experiencing the missing .dll error. If you had any troubles previously, please try redownloading the file and give it a go again. My apologies for the inconvenience!
