Tesla Coils from Terry Blake

Nikola Tesla invented the Tesla Coil in the late 1800s. Here you will find some information and technologies related to that. HV is not safe and this is not a Hobby for Youngsters. Read to understand the dangers of High Voltage and Marvel at the phenomena.

Multi-Mini Capacitors

The pulse-energy nature of the Tesla coil has long been a tough environment for the discharge capacitor. Coilers have built capacitors with glass bottles and salt-water, sheets of glass and aluminum foil, and more recently, polyethylene sheets, aluminum flashing, and mineral oil

Magnifier Tesla Coil

In a Classic Tesla coil, the magnetic coupling between L1 and L2 is around 20% (0.2).  Tesla realized this caused a lot of loss, and he abandoned the design in favor of a 3 coil system with a very high coupling (60%).

Steve Conner of Scopeboy – Tesla to Inverters

Many projects and schematics related to Audio, Guitar, Amplifiers, synthesizers and Music Circuits. There are even Valve Amp and Computer related ideas.

Steve Conner of Scopeboy – Tesla to Inverters

“I’ve been building Tesla coils for about 4 years. I was inspired to start when I saw some pictures of Tesla coils making sparks on the internet, and wanted to experience one for myself. After my first attempt, I decided to join the online community of coil builders and try some of the new state-of-the-art ideas that were kicking around.”
