Large Tesla coil project
« on: May 12, 2023, 04:15:48 AM »
Hello all,

Recently I have began work on a large tesla coil and as it is finally working I though I would make a post.

Specs:
2x CM400
8x .5uf 2000v GTO snubber MMC
8x 8600uf 450v DC bus capacitors (4 parallel 2 in series)
6" by 34" secondary wound with 28awg wire
ring topload made with PEK plumbing line
3/8" primary coil
ud2.7 (I have a UD3 that will go in eventually but for testing the ud2.7 is easier)
all water cooled
Laminated bus bars (laser cut acrylic)

Will make another post when I do a full power test in the coming days.

Looks very good. What is the diameter of the PEK plumbing line and is it wrapped in foil...?

Looks very nice. Awesome work!
Cant wait to see it finished.

Also what's the peak primary current you're planning to have?
Hi, my name is Patriks and I'm from Latvia. I'm interesting electronics, especially power electronics and high voltage. I also make content on YouTube showing my journey in the awesome world of High Voltage.
