Tesla Coil

Tesla Coil, one of the devices that brought revolution in the field of power generation and transmission.

The Tesla coil consist of a primary tank circuit, a series LC (inductance & capacitance) circuit composed of a high-voltage capacitor, spark gap and primary coil, and the secondary LC circuit, a series resonant circuit consisting of the secondary coil plus a terminal capacitance or top load.

There are numerous applications of the coil including, X-ray generation, high frequency alternating current generation, producing very high power up to millions of watts, also the most important and path breaking wireless transmission of electricity, wireless telegraphy etc.

Below are some interesting facts about Tesla coil, reading this will blow your minds off… Enjoy…

These coils are able to light up fluorescent lights which were almost 50 feet away, wireless. The other fact is that there is a direct conversion of electricity to light which does not need the electrodes, unlike the normal bulbs. What it means is that, the fluorescent lights which have already burnt out can also produce light.

Below shown is a diagrammatic representation of Tesla coil.
