Latest output from the new Telsa Coil at PPM!

Final Tesla Coil Test Run – PPMThe final Tesla Coil video of the night, with proper adjustment of spark gaps, coil coupling, and ground placement. This method of driving a Tesla Coil, called a SGTC (Spark Gap Tesla Coil) uses a small set of closely positioned electrodes to create the necessary operating frequency for the coil. Final spark distance for the evening, 34″ !!!!! Yet this is a mere drop in the bucket for our eventual driver setup , a DRSSTC ( Dual Resonant Solid State Tesla Coil), which can produce arcs in the 6-7 foot range!
