NextGEN DRSSTC UD3: Unboxing, Soldering, Startup and Software (Part 1 of 3)

This is the first video in a series of 3, on how to get started with the DRSSTC UD3 Tesla coil driver. Huge shoutout to Steve Ward, Netzpfuscher (Jens Kerrinnes), Malte0811 and TMaxElectronics (Thorben Zethoff) for their work on the UD3 platform. I am on installing and testing this in my large Kaizer DRSSTC 3 […]

Energy Museum Shut Down! I Filmed the Last Public Tesla Coil Show

I visited the Danish Energy Museum back in Autumn 2023 and by pure coincidence it was their last opened weekend of the year and they would pack down to close for good, due to lack of funding. One of the few museums in Denmark, hosting a Tesla coil show for public display, has been closed

811A Vacuum Tube Tesla Coil + 1000 FPS Slow Motion Sparks

Technical walk-through and demonstration of spark generation from my first dual resonant Tesla coil. I finished this dual 811A vacuum tube Tesla Coil back in late 2008, which dates this back 15 years by now! At the time I finished this coil, my best camera at the time, could only record in 640×480 with horrible

8000FPS Slow Motion Tesla Coil Spark Formation and Collapsing Hot Spots

Slow motion Tesla Coil recordings of SSTC sparks. Recorded at 8000 frames per second and replayed at 15-30 frames per second. Notice the step leader, known from natural lightning strikes and the hot spots that might be forming from collapsing plasma channels. Join the discussion at High Voltage Forum about these high speed video recordings
