Re: [TCML] Miniature tesla

Yes, Jeff,

A couple of years ago, there was a sort of competition on the TCML to make the smallest possible TC's. They tend to operate at very high frequencies (in the 1 MHz range).

I think some of the smaller ones were 3 - 4" tall.

Check the TCML archives for discussions of these miniature units.

Has anyone ever tried to make a small, say 10" tc from a bug zapper xformer. I came across one that puts out 4000 volts and as far as I can figure 10 to 20 ma. , possibly 50watts .With the output shorted it pulls about .85amps @120v.  Would it even be feasible . If so could someone point me in the right direction as far as what size wire on say a 2" dia 10 to 12" secondary and a ball park on the cap, maybe around 3 to 4 nf ?

Thanks ,JM
