A tesla coil converts low freq into high frequency via an arc gap and LC matchings for both the primary and secondary to resonate at the designated higher frequency. A source frequency resonant circuit is merely the same thing; with no arc gap necessary to transfer power through space on an air core basis, but the actual resonant quantities used are based on the input frequency; usually 60 hz. This may not be as efficient of a process of power transfer since no high frequency interaction takes place.

Yes, The high voltages created might have a further TC primary application.

The source frequency resonant circuits; here specifically referring to 60 hz circuits rather then alternator derived frequencies near 465 hz as I have tested most of my coils at both frequencies for q factors: these both sensibly reflect a voltage rise according to turns ratio; and can operate in either fashion as step up or down of input voltages.

Probably not. However there are some circumstances at alternator frequencies near the mentioned 500 hz range where the amp turns of the secondary exceed the primary amp turns in tight coupling.

Likewise I will submit these in future postings.
