SSTC II. arose from the previous SSTC.
Primary now has 10turns of 1mm diameter wire wound on diameter 16cm.
I replaced MOSFETs for a stronger types STP25NM50N. Power consumption increased to 300W. SSTC is powered through a large isolation transformer 1:1,
but it is not necessary.
The streamers are 14cm, discharges into grounded objects 16cm. This SSTC I also tested with an ion engine.
WARNING !!! Tesla coil is extremely dangerous device!
Without knowledge of the principles of working with high voltage, you should not construct it.
Tesla coil is causing a broadband radio frequency interference. Electromagnetic radiation
can damage electronic devices or storage media. During the operation it produces ozone (O3) and other toxic
gases, must be ventilated! Everything you do at your own risk! For any injury I do not take any responsibility.
