Construction of a solid-state Tesla coil
Keywords:Resonant frequency, Tesla coil.
AbstractA theoretical and experimental study of the resonant circuits applied to the transmission and reception of wireless electrical energy is carried out. A solid-state Tesla coil is constructed, for which the resonance frequency and the maximum voltage generated by having a load at the top of the secondary coil are calculated. By means of an electromagnetic wave receiver designed to resonate at the same frequency of the Tesla coil, the voltage emitted by the secondary is measured. Using a PSoC microcontroller, it is displayed on an LCD screen to measure the range, frequency, power and effective voltage of the secondary.
