A Tesla coil For Jeff Rick at UNI.
TK “the Koil” Stack
(a play on one of the UNI mascots “TK”)
Hint there will be a “TC” too at some point.
TK is slated to be a 1.4kVA coil almost exact to NEO .
We have 2 FRANCE 12kV 60mA tranys.
We will be NOT be using MMCs as we now have a .020µF 45kV pulse cap.
The NST(s) will have a Terry Fritz filter on it .
After the 1st light I added the strike rail and Better GND buss..
4” by 24 PVC pipe
Slated wire size is 22 AWG
.25” Cu Tube .
Inner turn is at the 2.25” mark.
Spacing is .25”
We have 11 turns planned .
We will have a Strike rail that is 2.75” above deck hight .
Each 12/60 of NST needs 0.013µF . .026µF total
The Maxwell we have is .020µF 45kV, good enough.
1st Light with a 2” Secondary , for fun .
Gosh how I love the smell of Ozone .
Very soon we will have the new SEC wound and ready to fire up .
I have never used a maxwell cap on a smaller coil ,
NEO was MMC . It will be interesting to see what runs better ..
