Tesla Coils in Practical Applications
Original poster: "CJ Moore by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <wizard1234-at-home-dot-com>
I know that while there has been a great deal of research in Tesla Coils,
has anyone found any real practical application for these devices? (besides
The reason that I ask is I have done Science Fair (school project type deals
for those who don't know) projects in the past with tesla coils, 1st one was
something really stupid and I don't remember what it was about. The second
one was a little better, I tested to see if the magnetic field around the
coil decreased proportionally to the distance from a given point. (I used a
multimeter and a search coil, which is a like a small secondary).
This year I don't have any ideas and need one fast.
If anyone could help me with an idea I would be very grateful.
I need something which is constant, and then a variable to test.
IE: which flower lives longest 1) NaCL solution 2) sucrose solution 3)
pepper solution 4) aspirin solution 5) pure H2O (constant) * The flowers,
amount of water, sunlight, etc. would remain constant but the substance
So I need something like that but in the TC field.
One idea that I had was to create one coil and then the 3 different types of
primaries to see which one worked best with the given system, but I don't
know how well that would work out.
