I'm not that much of a musical type to make tesla coil which can sing songs :-)
Well,my company manufactures high voltage gear.
Beside standard LI tests some products are desirable to test to bidirectional OSIV .
For preliminary testings and in the conjucion with modified Marx generator we have,I think that tesla coil
might serve good for generating fast OSIV and return OSIV transients.
At least 800 kV,25 kHz output is required,and aproximate calculation goes like 5 kW at about 50 impulses per second
or 10 kw at 100 impulses per second should be enough for the purposes.
Basically,we are exploring possibilities tesla HF generators offer here and are open to suggestions.
How efficient tesla coils can be?
If the peak power on spark gap coil is higher than on SSTC,can you recommend best solutions for controling the spark gap coil behavior?
