RE: Tesla Coil Efficiency Test
Original poster: "Terry Fritz" <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>
I ran the computer model of my small coil today. The schematic is at:
The power losses are listed at:
The power into the coil itself is 294 - 59.7 = 234.3 watts and the streamer
power is 81.4 watts. The effieciency is about 34.7%. Not that the gap
eats 40% more power than the streamers!
