Hi Tesla group,
> I have this Tesla coil unit that I have to get up and going. It's one
of the "Information Unlimited" coils and I blew up the Xformer. The size of
the secondary coil is 12" tall by 3" diameter wound on pvc form driven by 6
turns of #12 wire. The transformer is the is the question.
I need to pick up a 6KV 20ma Xformer which has to fit in the
original metal case. Since it's one of these "Information Unlimited" Tesla
coils, the original dimensions were 5.5" by 4.5" and stands 5" tall
single output terminal with the trans case acting as the other terminal
ground. I'm also using a .005 uf cap across the trans with an RF choke.
My question is this;
> What if I increase the trans to 12kv and 30ma or 6kv and 30ma what's
going to happen to the cap values? where can I find the matching cap?
What is the math equations to figure the difference in cap size? HELP,
