I took the coils to the Cambridge teslathon 2016 and as there is less pressure there to not blow up the coils, I let them run at the highest power yet.

Even after runs like these the IGBT's remained cool. Unfortunately, I could see the start of corona from the primaries, a good sign that it is near the max power.
