[Help]Multible Tesla coils on one high voltage tranformator

Postby Luca Brunner » Thu Jan 24, 2019 10:09 am

Hi
I need some help because I planed a project with tesla coils and I like to have medium sized sparks ca. 5 to10 cm and a lot of them so I thought take a bigger tesla coil and make multiple coils on them.
now the problem I don't know anything about tesla coils and don't know how I should scale the tesla coil and if I should take them parallel or serial and can I have two on top of each other showing in different directions so I could make more use of one primary coil?
you can see my problems many questions and no idea what so ever how I could solve them

thanks for every help

Luca Brunner

Hi Luca,

then I can only give you the advice not to do it but learn how the coils work first.
These voltages can, if handled incorrectly, be quite dangerous.
Take your time, learn the basics, find some folks who join/guide you.
Then you will learn how to operate the coils safely.
Try a proven design and then start to copy/modify/improve.
We all have blown up a few capacitors, burnt IGBTs, smoked resistors, etc.
But know the safety precautions.

May sound stale but it is your safety.

Find some folks near you.
Meet, discuss and learn.
This is the easy way and it is fun.
