working on parametric transformers

Ideally the forcing rate of change should be 2x the resonant frequency of the system you want for stable opperation, though many bifurcations can be had. This is similar to Jim Murrays work albeit with capacitance.
Parametric transformers comes into the work I am doing on the STEAP thread, it is very interesting and quite enlightning, all help there would be appreciated
