Tesla Coils

Tesla coil is the popular short name for a resonant air core transformer originally invented by the Serbian born scientist Nikola Tesla. There are different topologies of Tesla coils with their own abbreviation

DRSSTC: Dual Resonant Solid State Tesla Coil
SGTC: Spark Gap Tesla Coil
SSTC: Solid State Tesla Coil
VTTC: Vacuum Tube Tesla Coil

Kaizer VTTC I

Kaizer VTTC I
Introduction A VTTC is a Vacuum Tube Tesla Coil and it uses vacuum tubes / valves for the oscillator that is self biasing from a grid leak circuit. I chose to build a VTTC because...
