CRAVEN, R.M., SMITH, I.R. and NOVAC, B.M., 2017. Significant practical features of Tesla transformers. International Journal of Current Research, 9 (11), pp. 60313-60316.
Although a large number of publications dealing with Tesla transformers have appeared, many of these are confined to providing an analysis of the transformer performance based on a lumped equivalent circuit model. The present paper is concerned with more practical issues and begins by considering the often overlooked significance of the magnetic coupling between the primary and secondary windings for the range of potential applications of these transformers. It continues by discussing the benefits of using a solid-state primary switch and providing an insight into various other additions that may be made to the basic circuit.
