Check the archives.. at least 10 years ago or more, someone had a nice SPICE model for the spark gap, and there's also a good SPICE model for the NST.I am just starting to learn PSPICE. In OrCad Capture CIS Lite (free version) v 16.6 can a spark cap Tesla coil be modeled? I have done a single AC source RLC circuit and played around with Q factors (adding or reducing resistance), running it over a range of frequencies to get a voltage graph of the results. I am curious how to model the 120v step up NST part, the air core transformer part factored around resonance (not on mutual flux or turns ratio) and the air gap or "switch when the capacitors are fully charged" part. Have any of you done such things with PSPICE before, or have project files that you are willing to share?
I'll see if I can dig it up. _______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list Tesla@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla
