The Solid State Disruptive Tesla Coils: the SSDTC`s (formerly malchristened
the OLTC) Are completely reliable, as long as proper IGBT overvoltage
prevention is implemented.
With one of Steve Connors controll boards keping track of what`s going on,
they are pretty hard to kill.
I doubt I am going to build another sparkgap coil, on my own initiative.
And I`m 52 yrs.
(But I am still taking orders.....)
However, what I really enjoy about the bridge SSTC`s is the return to juicy
descriptive language that they have brought along.
Remember the days of yore, when caps failed, leaving floors all slippery,
coilers dispared and wives in disgust?. We havent had reports of that for a
long time. Coiling was bordering on getting boring and predictable!
Now we have icky sticky goo, "snort allover the place" exploding IGBT`s
flying around (remember the MOSFets?), in short, we are back with the good
old unexpected surprice (arent they always) Brains are put to the test,
And cosmic rays!. I thought we weren`t allowed to talk about things like
that on this list, but the other day one of the most honoured members, Greg
Leyh, introduced the concept of Cosmic Ray Triggered Shoottrough CRTS. (say
it! it`s almost an acronym). Much to the relief of the embarrased budding
powerelectronics basement experimenter wannabee with a rapidly growing pile
of dead silicon created from experimentation with terminal results (and
I`m not talking about the top terminal here).
So that`s why they blew so suddenly, he says with a smug, it was due to CRTS.
The day is getting close, and this is all attributable to the solid state
of coiling, when we will be able to grasp the concept of free energy, as it
was originally intended by the great Master and Foreman, Nicola himself.
Cracpots, scientists and experimenters will join and unite in the great
quest to unfold the original power scheme of the master. No more name
calling, no ridicule or disgust. Just pure bliss, bliss and heaven.
What a great time we are living in.
Cheers, Finn Hammer, a Danish coiler
