Özet

A Tesla transformer is a source that can generate high voltage with high frequency. It is also known a resonance system becomes two air cored coils. Classic Tesla transformer system consists of a high voltage generator which is usually a Neon Sign Transformer (NST), high voltage capacitor and spark gap electrodes. This paper presents mathematical analysis of the equivalent circuit, measure/calculation of its parameters, reasons of resonance, examine of resonance frequencies and a simple solid state driver with a low voltage in the primary side for a Tesla transformer.
