Solid state tesla coils - general notes
- Which topology?
- Highly recommended reading on MOSFETs and magnetics
- PCB layout considerations
- Gate drive pulse transformers, design tips and examples
- Switch dead time and SSTCs
- Pulse generators - 555 vs UC3846, L494, LM3524
- Impedance matching
An oscilloscope, isolation transformer, and a variac are mandatory for testing and debugging a solid state TC.
