Abstract: This paper provides an overview of the response of the tuned secondary circuit of a Tesla transformer, following impulse excitation from the tuned primary circuit. Multiorder oscillatory voltages and currents are energized in the secondary circuit, and research is ongoing to determine the fundamental and higher order modes for various secondary winding configurations, with the aim of developing design techniques that can be used to suppress the generation of the higher order modes. It is anticipated that this will lead to generators which exhibit enhanced spectral purity and which will be better suited to use in electronic warfare applications than conventionally wound Tesla transformers. © 2013 IEEE.
